The topography of the hill that Hearst Castle was constructed on is nearly as magnificent as the castle itself. Well not really, but William Hearst sure picked an incredible place to build such an opulent home. The vast property around the castle was used for a private zoo during William’s tenure there.

Hearst Castle is now a state park with many visitors, but they are not allowed to hike the property. It’s too bad as the rolling hills in this part of San Luis Obispo County are prime for hiking. Harmony Headlands State Park nearby is probably your best bet to satisfy that urge to hike the coastal hills here.

Below the castle there’s a beach that bears the Hearst name too and it’s also magnificent. This beach is protected from the west by San Simeon Point so it’s ideal for kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.

If you haven’t visited the castle or explored the nearby “SLO Coast” then add it to your bucket list. You won’t be disappointed.
