The area of Huasna, High Mt. Road is easy. There are a couple small creek crossings, but I doubt there's any water since we haven't had any rain. It's a scenic and nice drive, I would recommend it.
I haven't been to the Garcia Ridge area in many years, I've heard from friends that there are easy spots and some extremely difficult spots too.
I don't know of any mountain trails with ocean views, most of the property that would provide a view is privately owned. You can hike some trails that have amazing views, one out of Shell Beach is beautiful.
There is always the beach as others have mentioned, I've lived here my entire life and spent many days on the dunes in a dunebuggy or my dads Jeeps. I prefer not to go down there due to the number of tourists and the salt water. However, if you visit here it's sort of a must do. It's the only beach in California you can drive on and no matter how much we fight, someday the environmentalist very well may end up closing the dunes
