San Clemente has many great walking trails but one of the best is the walking trail the runs parallel with the Pacific and has some of the most beautiful and spectacular views.  The trail is a result of many years of planning and was recently opened to the public in 2008.  The trail is open for those who enjoy walking, biking and dog walking.  The trail starts at the North Beach area as pictured below.  This is right next to the Ole Hanson Beach Club and train station.

The Broadmoor area of San Clemente is situated in the hill side area directly behind the San Clemente High School as pictured below.  It's a very quiet community that is home to many of the single level homes that can be found in San Clemente.  The location is ideal and situated high on a hillside that has nice views of the ocean.  As you make your way up the hill the views keep getting better with panoramic views of the ocean.  The homes were built 1974 to 1976 and normally feature three to four bedrooms with an average 2,000 square foot home with an attached 2 car garage.  These are classic ranch style homes with large living and family rooms and bedrooms located off a narrow hallway.  The backyards face the ocean and the lot sizes tend to be very

Shorecliffs area in north San Clemente is a great place to find ocean view homes in San Clemente.  In the last year many ocean view homes have come on the market in the mid $500,000 to $600,000 range.  The homes in this area were first built in the 1960's as single level homes.  Throughout the years there has been a modest mixture of two story homes in the neighborhood but for the most part the majority of homes are one level.  These are smaller beach homes that average under 2,000 square feet with some large homes that range up to 3,000 square feet of living space.  Home buyers who have a budget up to $600,000 and looking for a view property should seriously consider this community.
