Pecho Coast Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Pecho Coast Trail curves around the northern point of San Luis Obispo Bay from Port San Luis towards Moñtana de Oro State Park. There are two docent-led hikes across the privately owned PG&E land. Reservations required: (805)541-8735. Both hikes follow the steep cliffs to Point San Luis and the Port San Luis Lighthouse, a two-story Victorian redwood structure built in 1890. It is a great spot for watching the annual migration of the gray whales. The longer hike continues across the coastal bluffs and pastureland to an oak grove in Rattlesnake Canyon."

FIRST OFF, YOU HAVE TO POACH THE TRAIL. YOU MUST SNEAK AROUND THE GATE & THE GUARD TO THE PRIVATELY OWNED PG&E PROPERTY. THE VIEWS WERE SPECTACULAR THE ENTIRE TIME & THE TRAIL WAS WELL-MAINTAINED. IT DEAD-ENDS AT THE LIGHT HOUSE; (1.5 MI) IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE PAST THE HOUSES THROUGH THE GATE ON FIRE ROAD / COW TRAIL IT WRAPS AROUND THE MOUNTAIN FOR THE NEXT FEW MILES. WE WENT 3.5 MILES IN, THEN TURNED AROUND. THE TOTAL HIKE WAS RIGHT UNDER 7 MILES. DID NOT SEE 1 PERSON ONLY WILDLIFE & SEA LIONS.
