This easy, level hike begins in a convenient Park and Ride lot just off CA 1 and ends at charming Avila Beach Community Park. Most of the trail in the Avila Valley traces the San Luis Obispo Creek, lined with eucalyptus trees, oaks, and willows. This is a paved multi- use path along an old Pacific Coast Railroad right- of- way with a dirt shoulder that treats dogs to a banquet of natural smells. This trail is named in honor of Bob Jones, considered an environmental pioneer who was committed to protecting natural habitats. Bob Jones was president of the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County from 1987 to 1989. The trail is a result of his vision and dedication to restoring and protecting the San Luis Obispo Creek. Bob Jones died in 1994 and the trail opened in 1998. Plans are to eventually extend the trail by an additional 4.4 miles to San Luis Obispo.
