Salinas River Walk Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Salinas River area in Paso Robles has an undesignated walking trail through the riparian habitat. The path leads through cottonwood, willow and sycamore groves along the banks of the river. This is a popular bird-watching trail. Migrating species frequent the area in winter and spring."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in San Luis Obispo County, California (Day Hike Books).
"This urban hike alternates between dirt and pavement as it traces the banks of the Salinas River. Tucked above the river’s floodplain, it meanders discreetly through Lawrence “Larry” Moore Neighborhood Park past newer home developments and a commercial center as it weaves through a chaparral landscape interrupted by cottonwood trees and willows.The hike begins in a residential neighborhood on a multi-use trail that alternates between dirt and pavement. This urban hike is an example of the trend for communities to integrate nature and restore habitat alongside residential and commercial development. There are plans to extend the trail system to 40 miles, connecting communities along the way."
