A longer more adventurous hike, starting off at a scenic waterfall the trail then follows the stream south through a tree covered canyon and eventually cuts west bringing you to a series of switchbacks up the canyon dropping you at the top of a ridge providing a panoramic view of SLO and East Cuesta Ridge. Bring a light jacket, snack in case you get hungry, a camera and water. This is a great hike and we promise you will have a blast! Meet at the Reservoir Canyon Trail Head.
Take US 101 North. Go one mile past the city limits (Monterey Street exit) and turn right on Reservoir Canyon Road. Drive to the end of the road (about 1/2 mile) and park in the dirt lot. Please try to carpool, the parking area is small. Email Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
