Stadium Park Trail is a 1.9 mile loop trail located near Atascadero, California that offers scenic views. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
I love this trail because there are lots of different trails you can take and it is slightly challenging for a beginner like myself. You really get the feeling like you're out in the countryside even though you're right in the middle of the city. Lately I've been seeing more dog poop which is one of my pet peeve's, but when I first started this trail in the summertime it seemed like most everybody was really good about picking up after their dogs. Lots of shade, lots of trees, lots of interesting plants and animals. And even though a lot of people use this trail, you will most likely be alone for most of your hike and only see people once in a while.
Trail is well maintained lots of deer and animal life
This is a good short hike with some nice elevation to start. Would recommend early morning during the warmer months. Great views and a moderate difficulty.
Good elevation changes to get the heart rate up and nice views of Atascadero from the top. Easy access and right in town. Well maintained.
Nice.... never realize you're right in the city.
I just finished this hike for the first time. This is a great hike, lots of hills and what a great view once you get to the top. I will be doing this hike again and again. This took us a little over an hour, nice slow pace with lots of picture taking. You can make this hike short or long.
Stadium Park is a short hilly trail typically used by locals seeking an easy hike or a place to walk their dogs. It can also be used as a short but moderate difficulty single track for mountain biking or trail running if you don't mind maneuvering past all the hikers and pets. The trail is set among oaks covered in Spanish moss and offers a decent view of Atascadero from the top.
