Got to the trail head and trail is closed due to a mountain lion siting on 1/13/18. The posting states that the lion is suspected to still be in the area,do not continue. This is why the state of California should allow folks to carry a pistol while hiking, just a thought. Ill try this hike another day.

Loved this trail! Had some good uphills but not too much for a beginner like me. Will definitely do again. Maybe try my hat at some trail running next time. Good trails for that pretty well maintained. There are some slightly overgrown portions but not much. Love to bring others back with me too!

Nice trail above Costco in San Luis. A little boring and can be a little overgrown. Came across a rattler near one of the wooden bridges in the oak grove. No one on the trail though. Nice view of Los Osos Valley Road and area.
