Pecho Coast Trial to the Point San Luis Lighthouse is a great hike, one of the best in the area. The panoramic views of San Luis Obispo Bay below are dramatic, the hike is led by staff knowledgeable in local biology and history, and the lighthouse is one of a kind, perched as it is on the extreme point, basking in the mild California sunshine. My wife and I did it together, and it was a nice time for us. I can’t say enough good things about the hike.
It’s just a little inconvenient due to being owned by a large corporation, PG&E. The hikes are docent led only, and only on Wednesday and Saturday. Advanced planning is required, since it is such a beautiful hike. It does fill up quickly, and reservations can be made online.
The other inconvenience (for us) was that they don’t allow any children on the hike under 9 years old. We are a very outdoorsy family, and my kids were hiking the round trip Yosemite Falls trail when they were 6 (approx 7 miles). We enjoy hiking as a family, and this trail was denied to us due to what I assume is PG&E’s fears of some type of lawsuit.
Be that as it may, a great little hike (3.75 miles round trip) if you’re in the area and were smart enough to do some advance planning.
