Oats Peak Trail - Los Osos, Ca.
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.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE OATS PEAK
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
From the 101, exit Los Osos Valley Road in San Luis Obispo, head West
