Los Osos Oaks State Reserve Professional Review and Guide
"Los Osos Oaks State Reserve encompasses 85 acres that was once home to the Chumash Indians. This small reserve has ancient stands of 600-800 year old dwarfed oaks. Lace lichen streamers hang from the massive, twisted and contorted branches. Three short, enchanting loop trails meander under the canopy of the unique old growth oaks past ferns, mushrooms and poison oak. Los Osos Creek follows the eastern edge of the preserve under the shade of sycamore, willow, laurel and cottonwood trees."
