This is a great walk if you don't want to to have a lot of people around you. It is a bit hard to find. You come into the park and just keep driving. There is an old store on the left (it wasn't open yet), but they have maps there of the walk). Turn back to the main road... More

Very kid friendly (a bit too tame for me but great for families, easy stroll). Beautiful coastline and coves. Waves were 20 feet high because of the storm, so we didn't get to explore the coves much, but the view was majestic

a wonderful place. Great views. I park at Spooner's cove and walk south along the shoreline. One of my favorite beach hikes in San Luis Obispo. I also like the hikes along San Simeon state park too.

With 4 access and parking points, some wheelchair accessible sections, clean well kept toilets (pit/chemical), and absolutely amazing views in every direction from every step of the way, this is one of the best walks I've done in years. It's easy. You can just do a little, half a mile total. Or you can do the whole thing, about 5... More

Walkable and wheelchair/stroller trail, which has little side jaunts that can take you closer to the water. Lots of wildlife to appreciate. You can spend the better part of an afternoon walking this trail, enjoying it, taking advantage of the frequent benches. Bring water.

We walked the Bluff Trail on a gorgeous warm morning. The views of the Pacific Ocean are delightful to see. Montana de Oro is a superb state park to go to. The scenery is superb.

This was such a pleasant and enjoyable experience! The trail is "paved" and fairly level, with benches every so often for those who might need a rest. You can even ride a bike on it!

The details -- fascinating tip-tiled rocks. the birds (offshore and on land, including an extended family of quail that we flushed out of the scrub), the history (site of a chute that early settler Spooner used to load ships). Accessible from various sport, so it is appropriate for people who can't handle long hikes but still interesting for those who... More
