                                                                                                                    MAY ACTIVE HIKES

Friday, May 7, 8:30 am – Pismo Preserve to Avila Overlook, PB (6.0 mi, +760 ft elev change; open grasslands, oak woodlands) From the parking lot we will take portions of the Spring to Spring and Discovery trails to the Panhandle Trail, following it to the end. Since we will hike in “Gray May” we should have a cool hike. Hopefully, the overcast will have lifted enough mid-hike, that we can enjoy the 360° views at the overlook. Regardless of the weather we should have an enjoyable hike.

To Get There – Hwy 101 south to Exit 191B. The entrance and parking lot are located on the east side of the freeway at the southern end of Mattie Road.

Friday, May 21, 8:30 am – Pt. Buchon Trail to Disney Point (3.6 mi, mild elev changes). From the Coon Creek, Montaña de Oro parking lot we will take an access road to the PG&E check in station. The first mile offers access to Coon Creek Beach with views of a sea cave, then we continue 0.8 miles along the coastline. (The trail is closed beyond.) If hikers wish a longer hike, we can continue on the MdO Bluff Trail on return.

To Get There – LOVR to Montaña de Oro State Park. Continue past the entrance sign 3.9 mi. to the Coon Creek parking lot at the end. Travel time from Hwy 101 in SLO is 45 – 50 minutes.
