Huntington State Beach
The beach is a sanctuary for the threatened snowy plover, and a fenced-off preserve protecting the California least tern, a rare and endangered species, is at its southernmost end. Just south of the preserve you can cross under Pacific Coast Highway to connect to the Santa Ana River Trail, which travels inland 30 miles along a flood channel to the Orange/Riverside county line.
