A great, simple uphill grind with great views, with a fast and fun downhill ride on the return.

Jason Stout

Overview

The upper portions of the road are closed to the public. Turn around just past the four-mile mark as mapped.
Family Friendly: Kids learning to ride will find this to be easy and none technical. Great for kids to learn to control downhill turns and control speeds. A wide road makes it easy to ride with friends and family.

Description

Starting off, you'll find a locked gate (don't worry, this is public land). Hop the gate and start your ascent. This a simple dirt road trail that is great for a quick ride in the area, or if you want to build up stamina on an uphill trail without any technical areas. Views are wide and open on your right-hand side over looking highway 101 and The City of San Luis Obispo. The downhill back to the car is fast and fun.

Be careful as hikers use this path frequently along with other bikers.

Went all the way up to the "No trespassing" gate. Beautiful views of San Luis Obispo, Los Osos and Océano Dunes on a clear day. 4.9mi
