A climb to the highest ridge and peaks in Montana D'Oro SP.

Dan Ardoin

Overview

Multi-use trail: hiking, biking and horseback riding.
Awesome views of the coastline and coastal hills and valleys! View of Morro Bay, Pacific Ocean and Perfumo Canyon Rd.

Description

Trailhead is just inside the campground entrance. Stay on the Oats Peak trail (clearly marked) as all other trails south of Islay Creek are closed to mountain biking. This is an extremely well built trail that climbs for five miles. The last 1/2 mile is very steep with loose rocks. There is a wide turnaround point just before the final climb to the top.

Turn around and enjoy the 5+ miles of flowing downhill!

A rewarding climb with a flowy, fun descent. Single speed friendly. The few areas with some exposure might make beginner riders a little nervous, but otherwise a good one for all level of riders. The first climb from the trailhead is the steepest, apart from the very last .5 mile that many people avoid and turn around at. Jan 7, 2017
Parking can be challenging due to the high volume of hikers and beach goers. Pretty awesome trail with some adrenaline filled switchbacks, Climbing Oak peak trail is a little challenging, several rock gardens along the way to the summit. Made it to the top in a little over an hour and a half. The ride down was fast in some areas and slow due to several hikers. Overall fun MTB trail. Mar 5, 2018
