I have been to Los Osos Oaks state reserve few times now and at different times of the year. I absolutely love it there. There are no man-made materials inside the park, only nature at its best.
We went to Los Osos State Park bluffs because as we had read about them. Glad that we did- the bluffs offered fantastic views. We saw sea caves and blow holes. Multitude of birds- various species. Overall, we had a great hike and we did witness breathtaking views.
Very convenient, just a few steps off the highway. The signs say "Oak View," but there is really no "view." You simply wander through an incredible forest of odd-looking oak trees. Along one of the paths (I couldn't say which one), you can find a carpet of sea shells left by the Native Americans who lived here: It's called a... 更多
This is a dense forest of pygmy oak tress.

I thought I was entering a fairy realm when walking this forest, except for the road trafic noise that brings you back to reality in some places. You can't see anything of the wonders of this forest from the road. There are three trails but we got lost twice, the trail signs were sometimes absent. If you like old trees,... 更多
This is truly a magical forest. Try to visit when a docent is scheduled to conduct your walk while telling stories about the history of the reserve as well as providing fascinating info on its flora and fauna. You will want to bring a camera to capture the lovely scenery. Two pests are in abundance, poison oak and cucumber vine.... 更多
I've been to this reserve many times and still get a bit turned around regards trails. Old coastal oaks with... 更多
