Bob Jones City to the Sea Trail, Avila Canyon

bob-jones-trailAn "urban" hike through beautiful Avila Canyon, the trail starts as a paved bicycle path through the dense riparian growth along San Luis Obispo Creek. The path merges into a service road where the canyon widens and follows alongside a golf course with beautiful canyon vistas. The trail ends at the main road in Avila Beach. A short walk then reaches the Avila Beach Pier with very scenic views at the end of the pier. Very nice variety of scenery for one hike.


Start of the Trail - A parking area is available at the trail head. Exit US101 at Avila Beach and head west. Turn right on Ontario Rd (Avila Hot Springs). Go past the KOA campground and you will see a parking lot off to the right. The trail starts right across the street. Remember to lock your car and don’t leave any valuables inside.


End of the Trail – Downtown Avila Beach. Use these directions to get into Avila. The trail ends on the corner of Avila Beach Drive & 1st Street. Use the new traffic light for a safer crossing into downtown.
