This is a great place to enjoy nature and enjoy the beauty of this area. I have spent many days hiking the cliffs. The scenery is beautiful.

I'm sorry for those who will never experience the Bluff Trail, but it has been completely removed, replaced by a wide, aggregate roadway. The charm and easy hiking are gone. Now, you walk along expecting a car or speeding bicycle to come up behind you. There are far fewer views, as the road had to be moved away from the... More

The trail is undergoing renovation from Nov 2013 to December 2014. When we went there the second week of January 2014, the entire trail and surrounding area was closed. Perhaps the area will be open for a few days around holidays. But it would be wise to check for trail openings/closings before making the trip to the park.

My husband didn't expect much. I love the ocean and want to spend as much time near it as possible and I kept reading good reviews of it. He loved it as much as I did.

Wonderful views of the coves and ocean splashing against the rocks. It being a windy day with a very cool breeze the walk was refreshing, but water was still needed. The waves were crashing into the rock creating a photographer's dream. The area is roped off for a reason, but people have still walked over the safety line and that... More

Well worth the walk along this bluff over looking the ocean. It is worth driving out to just park and see the view from here, but if you can walk, it's not terribly strenuous. Bring a water bottle.

This is a lovely and easy walk with places to stop and soak in the views. There is also a cove that is accessible via a staircase so you can sit on the beach. We brought a picnic and it doesn't get any better than eating with that ocean view and soundtrack.

The Bluff Trail in Montana de Oro State Park is simply one of the most beautiful hikes you will ever take. And, it’s appropriate for novice hikers – the trail is well-marked and has very little elevation gain. You should be good to go if you have a sturdy pair of walking shoes, sunscreen and some water. A hat, sunglasses... More

We got up early because we heard the tidepools at Montana De Oro were some of the best in California. Coralina Cove along the bluff trail proved just that. We diddnt want to do the 8 mile round trip bluff trail walk, so we parked at Valencia trail, and walked along the bluff trail, it is about 3 miles round... More
