Allen Riedel
"Morro Bay State Park is a highly developed recreational area complete with golf course and a campground equipped with showers. Hiking in the park is limited, but the trail to Black Hill is a unsigned trail. The path wanders and climbs gently for the first half-mile, gaining steepness as it nears the apex. Views open up of the beautiful estuary and the sandspit behind you. As the trail climbs around the hill, there are remnants of old structures and a water containment tower."

Nice little hike we did with our 22 month old in backpack. You DO drive across the golf course, we missed the turn the first time around.

This trail is right by my house.It is an easy family hike to the top. Maybe a ten minute climb. Beautiful views of Morro Bay and Morro Rock, with 360 degree views once on top. This makes a great place to take in a sunset while visiting Morro Bay.
