Shell/Avila Ridge Trail
by CENCAL-Adventurer on Mar 23, 2010
Sunset Palisades, California, United States
Hiking | 3.2 miles (15.6 miles away)
New to the area so I don't know if there is a local name for this trail but I named it based on where I was. It was pretty steep and rocky at start and then leveled out a bit on top of the ridge. I'm not sure if there was a better return route but we ended up on the street below walking back to the car.

Black Hills Hike

Morro Bay, California, United States
Hiking | 1.8 miles (1.4 miles away)
We parked our car at the CaliforniaState Park headquarters and began the grove hike connecting to the Black Hill hike. The headquarters are located near the intersection of Park View Drive and State Park Drive. The grove trail was dry dirt today, but could become very muddy and slippery when it becomes wet. The grove trail is well pronounced, but not maintained as well as the Black Hill Trail. This trail passes through small groves or oaks...

Great hike! Goes through all kind of different terrain, shady at the beginning then sunny the last third part (no shade at the summit). All kind of perfumes, but mostly sage everywhere, it smells so good!360º view at top with most of the nine sisters in sight, plus of course the ocean/foggy coast line.

A nice quick hike on the coast in Montana de Oro State Park. Lots of views, climbing around and even a bit of wildlife. Dog friendly, bike friendly (except when we were climbing up and down to the water) and lots of joggers.
