Things to Do


Hiking & Trails

Heritage Ranch has miles of private hiking trails available for residents. From simple walks to vigorous climbs including a fitness trail. There's a variety of terrains to choose from for every level of fitness! While you walk, enjoy solitude, mountain views, and spectacular lake views!


Equestrian Center

The Equestrian Center has been at Heritage Ranch since the first property was sold. The original developer used to give a pony to any property owner that wanted one. The goal for the Equestrian Center is to continue to make improvements and upgrades for the riding enjoyment of all Heritage Ranch Equestrian Center members.

The Equestrian Center has a total of 87 paddocks with 18 paddocks added in 2004 in the new section. Paddocks are currently available for lease in both areas, and are leased on a monthly basis.

Riders at the Equestrian Center have riding abilities ranging from just beginning to expert. Many breeds are represented including: Quarter Horses, Arabians, Morgans, Appaloosas, Paints, Pasos, National Show Horses, Warmbloods to Miniature Horses. At the center there is dressage, hunter-jumper, cutting, reining cow, team penning, and working cow horses as well as mini's that pull carts, plus a large number of the members have trail horses to utilize the great trails at Heritage Ranch.


Marina/Lake Access

Living on Heritage Ranch allows access to Lake Nacimiento and a private marina. These facilities are located at the end of Heritage Rd, on the west end of The Ranch, just beyond the campground.

The boat launch ramp and courtesy dock are available free of charge for residents so they do not have to go use the public facilities at Lake Nacimiento Resort. Boats need to have a current Mussel Inspection and pay day use or yearly pass fees to Monterey County for use of the lake.

Beyond the Marina is “The Point”, a popular spot to day beach at the water’s edge. Pack up your pop-up canopy, cooler, and a raft to spend the day lakeside. You can fish from The Point as well, and there is a fish cleaning station as you exit the marina area.



An amazing place to camp, Heritage Ranch offers many choices suited to your needs.

RV Camping

The RV camping comes with full hook-up and a lovely view of the lake. This area is located on the road to the Marina, just after turning off of Heritage Road.

Tent Camping

The tent camping area is located just a bit closer to the Marina. Each campsite is clearly marked and has a picnic table. Tent sites 15-19 are available for reservations.

Day Camping

Day camping is on a first-come-first-serve basis. All canopies must be removed daily. Campsites 20 and 21 have been permanently converted to day use picnic sites only. There is no adjacent parking at these tables. Parking for these two locations is in the marina marked parking lot.
