“great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

this state park has good trails that parallel the sea cliffs of Montana de Oro. the many views of the waves crashing over the rocks is spectacular. If you take a good pair of binoculars sea otters can be seen in the kelp beds and many species of birds can be seen. Also, if your time is permitting, visit the little museum near the camping sites, the exhibits are great and the staff is very knowledgeable about the park.

An easy picturesque walk along the California coast. Spring is when the mountain gets its name....golden flowers everywhere.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Oct is a great month to go. It's nice and warm. Great place to find sea glass. You can take your dog which is rare.

“Bluff trail is beautiful and easy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a wide, flat trail along the bluffs of Montana de Oro. It is the perfect location for an easy stroll for those with issues that may make hiking difficult. We encountered some tide pools a little ways along the trail and sat looking at the beautiful waves and creatures for a while. Beautiful on a sunny day.
