From the carefree beaches of San Diego through the rugged, dramatic coastlines to the North, California has been building a trail, over 1,000 miles in length, within sight, sound, or smell of the ocean. It's a massive undertaking, and while work continues, much has been done. Follow KCET all summer long as we travel up the SoCal coast from the U.S.-Mexico border to Del Norte County. If you happen to also visit -- and we're sure you will -- let us know on social media with a thought, photo, or video by hashtagging it with #myCAcoast.
