Montaña de Oro State Park in Los Osos, California is a must see! This beautiful park is home to several different hiking trails, camping sites, picnic areas, and and some of the most magnificent beaches! Getting to the park is exciting in itself between the tree and cliff lined roads, and the views of the beaches from above.
This park is HUGE, and there is a lot to explore. We spent close to 2 hours at the park and only saw a few of the beaches and walked the Bluff Trail. Along the trail we saw at least two different beaches (both pictured below), and views from the top of cliffs.
Along our journey, we saw a woman staring down a cliff-side in panic, and we found that her dog had fallen down the side and was stuck on a ledge. Dogs are NOT permitted along the trails (they ARE on the campsites), and for this very reason! The rescue team had to come out and save the dog, and fortunately were able to. Please keep your furry friends at home or where they’re permitted so they are remain just that!!
Anyhow, this was one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to yet, and I will be returning to view the rest of the park. (Bonus: entry is FREE!) So, if you’re looking for something to do when in the Los Osos area, you HAVE to go to Montaña de Oro State Park!
