Pecho Coast and Point Buchon hiking trails


Diablo Canyon Power Plant provides pedestrian hiking opportunities on specific coastal portions of its property. Through its Land Stewardship Program, PG&E has preserved these areas, providing examples of the Central Coast in its natural, open space context.


In order to maintain the natural setting, hiking is allowed by a combined reservation system and first come, first serve basis. It is highly recommended that hikers secure reservations and bring a signed waiver on the day of their hike, as daily walk-up hikers will not be guaranteed entrance. Visit our reservations website for more information about hiking these trails and to make reservations.
