local tails & trails

With our year-round temperate climate and open spaces galore, our area can fulfill the doggy-est of dog dreams. For free play, there are dog parks up and down the coast. For exercise and exploration, there are lots of mountains with dog-friendly trails.

Here are a few sniff worthy spots:

In Avila Beach (5min drive from The Cliffs), the Bob Jones Trail offers a paved 4-mile out-and-back path through a sycamore forest to the beach. Or, if Rover really needs to burn off some steam, the Ontario Ridge Trail (3min drive) above Shell Beach is rugged and steep at 4 miles round-trip.

In Pismo Beach, the popular Pismo Preserve (7min drive) welcomes pooches to frolic over trails that span the 900-acre open space. And in Oceano, the Oceano Dunes Natural Preserve Trail (10min drive) offers a 2-mile loop over precious coastal dunes.
