These are multiuser trails managed by the city. There will be many hikers and bikers out. Use cation. Some parts of the hill are private property. There are several routes to the top and around the base. The back side has jumps, drops, etc. Control your speed on the downhill. If you ride it, consider joining the Central Coast Concerned Mountain Bikers to make sure the trail stays open and stays maintained.

Trail Directions
Take US Hwy 101 to San Luis Obsipo (going North or South). Take the Marsh Street exit. If coming from the North, take the immediate left into the parking lot at the base of the mountain beside the highway. Park and ride. If travelling from the South you will have to turn around once you take the exit (use the Chevron Station you see infront of you or just continue down a block). Follow Higuera St. and turn right as if you were going to get back on Hwy 101 headed South. Go under the bridge, take the right before you enter the onramp. Park and ride.

Summary:
This is a fun trail i enjoy at least once a week. i like to ride the perimeter trail starting at the Marsh st. access and taking the lower lemon grove loop, then around the base counter clockwise and up the fire road to the top. the north side needs at least 2 days to dry out after a rain, sometimes more. this is a great time to do trailwork rather than ride. because of vandalism we are in serious danger of losing access to the private property on the mountain.
PLEASE be aware the majority of San Luis Mountain is private property. The property owners have been very generous in allowing nearly full access to multiple trail users. PLEASE respect their property. DO NOT under any circumstances cut fences, climb fences, make new trails or leave any gates open. Failure to care for this property will jeopardize opportunities for access.

Summary:
Sweet ride for after work or school. Nice climb, with a killer downhill if you take the rock garden which goes down the opposite side you came up, that makes it on the south face. dont kill any hikers.

Recommended Route:
start at the parking lot, stay left at the first fork, after the switch backs take the second trail up, its a little less steep. then go to the top and bomb down the rockgarden.
