This trail is incredible; views, paths, and tide pools. Bluff Trail is quite accessible and a hiking novice would be able to do half of the path. It is a bit over 2 miles and it’s easy to get sucked in by the beauty, so if you’re just beginning you’ll want to take it slow. Just know your limits and you’ll be fine.
How to get there: Take Los Osos Valley Road WEST until it ends up at Montaña de Oro. Follow the road up the mountain and it’ll be a slight left after a larger building on the left. Parking is off the cement on the left hand side, large enough for about 8-10 cars. Enjoy!
