      Trails in the West Cuesta Ridge area vary from dirt roads to rocky, technical signletrack. The majority of this coastal chaparral riding area is in the Los Padres National Forest. However, trails also cross through lands owned by the City of San Luis Obispo, the Land Conservancy of SLO County, and California Polytechnic State University. Trail conditions vary widely in each parcel of land, but typically feature abundant singletrack, hairpin turns, shallow water crossings, as well as the occasional small herd of cattle in the lower areas. The upper ridge trails offer panoramic views of the entire county extending to the ocean.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Access Info:
