There are very few trails where you can beat the views. The Central Coast is a slice of heaven, and the trail riding here is some of the best in the country. If you don't feel like doing any technical riding or any climbing, go ride the three miles or so of the Bluff trail. It's a great place to have views without the hard trails (great for newbies).

The trails here are great singletrack. They are technical so don't get too lost in the views. There is plenty of places you can network together that have various levels of singletrack. If you take Manzanita trail up to the top, stop and take a look before you go back down. The views are amazing. Going down the Ridge Trail you need to be paying attention though.. there are some areas of shale that make the ride very technical.

You can easily make loops of anywhere between 4 and 15 miles, depending on your skills and threshold.

Getting there
Exit Los Osos Valley Rd from US 101, which is 3 miles south of the main San Luis Obispo exit. Go 12 miles west on Los Osos Valley Rd., which eventually goes south and becomes Pecho Valley Rd. You should start seeing signs for the park. You'll want to go at least 2.5 miles past the entrace, and if you go further, there is a parking lot. If there is no room at the parking lot, you can always park on the side of the road.
