California Hiking!

The Oats Peak Trail - Los Osos, Ca.
down town slo
Trail Head - Spooner Bay

If you are planning on hiking the Oats Peak Trail bring a truck load of energy,  plenty of water and a mountain guide.  I am kidding about the mountain guide but you will need some energy and water.

Spooner Bay, pictured above, located in Montana De Oro State Park is part of this California hiking adventure.  You get to see one of the most beautiful bays on the Central Coast of California.  The trail begins at the bay and winds its way to a breathing taking view of the Pacific Ocean.

Oats Peak is the second highest peak in Montana De Oro State Park. It is 1373 feet above sea level. 

Unless you are local and love hiking the trail might remain a secret.  I promise, you will love the park, the views and the trail.  Hiking California doesn't get any better than the hike up the hill to the peak of Oats.


1.   This trail is about 5.5 miles in distance. It is good hike so make sure you bring a back back full of goodies, water and anything else you might need to stay safe.  The hike will take you about 3 hours unless you are in super shape and run half the way.

2.   The trail is good but you need to watch your step in a few places and I suggest you bring a good walking stick.  You might need to fight back the bears.  Kidding, there are no bears but a walking stick might help.

3.    Now let me tell you how to get to this great California hiking trail. 
Trailhead: From Highway 1 in Morro Bay, take the S. Bay Blvd. Exit turn south towards the ocean and follow the signs for Montana De Oro and Morro Bay State Parks. Stay on S. Bay Blvd for four miles. Turn right onto Los Osos Valley Road (which becomes Pecho Valley Road after 1.5 miles) and follow it for 5.25 miles to the turnout for the Valencia and Oaks Peak Traisl. It is the first stop on the left after the campground and visitor center. There is also parking for the Bluffs Trail.

From the 101, exit Los Osos Valley Road in San Luis Obispo, head West and follow it for 12 miles to the park. (Lat:35.26334 Lon:-120.87235)
