      Trails in Montaña de Oro State Park offer bicyclists, hikers, and equestrians varied terrain with beautiful ocean and canyon views. Mountain bike trails range from flat and wide to technical singletrack. The Bluff Trail, Islay Creek Road, and Hazard Canyon Road require the least amount of bike handling experience and physical fitness. East Boundary Trail, Hazard Peak, Barranca Trail, Manzanita Trail, and the newer Oats Peak trails are generally considered intermediate and advanced trails. BEST AFTER RAIN, these trails tend to drain and displace water much more readily than many other trail systems in the county. DO NOT RIDE East Boundary Trail past the Barranca Trail intersection DURING or for MANY DAYS after rain due to very expansive clay soils. This will destroy the trail tread and the goo does not come off easily. If it has been heavily raining within the last day or two, avoid Irish Hills, Johnson Ranch, West Cuesta Ridge, and Madonna Mountain, and ride here at Montana de Oro or at Cerro Alto instead (unless you have advanced local knowledge), you'll be happy you did.
