Elfin Forest Natural Area

Los Osos, California

Elfin Forest Natural Area Professional Review and Guide

"The Elfin Forest Natural Area is a 92-acre refuge at the eastern shore of Morro Bay abutting the estuary. A mile of wooden walkways with viewing platforms and overlooks form an oval loop around the forest. The area includes a salt marsh, coastal dune scrub, morro manzanita, riparian woodland and dense stands of dwarfed 500-year-old pygmy oaks. The gnarled, windswept oaks have room-like openings and are draped with moss and lichens."
