An alternate route to the main West Cuesta Ridge trails from Cal Poly.

Overview

Description

Poly Canyon Road starts at an easily missed turnoff from Village Drive on the Cal Poly Campus. The first 1.5 miles are deceivingly easy, taking you past the Cal Poly "architecture graveyard" (worth a side trip!) over some rolling hills, and through several cattle gates before reaching three steep pitches and topping out just below the RR tracks. Luckily there's a bit of a view from the top to make up for the steeps. Continuing towards Stenner Creek, more steep pitches, rolling hills, and gates await.

The cattle gates exist for a reason, and the University's cows can quickly ruin the road surface during a storm. The mud on this road can be terrible, so avoid for a solid few days after any significant rain.
