Members Only Hike at O'Connor Ranch

August 2, 2019 - 9:00 - 11:30

Description: Hike the beautiful 200 acre O’Conner Ranch nestled below Cerro Romauldo peak off of O’Conner Way. No formal hiking trails exist on the ranch, but hikers may utilize the existing cow trails to walk up to an oak woodland below Cerro Romauldo with views of Los Osos and Chorro Valley. The hike will be approximately 2 miles and climb about 500 elevation.

Please bring:

  • A reusable water bottle
  • Sturdy hiking shoes
  • Sun Protection


Important Information:

Docent-led ranch hikes require significant hiking experience. Ranch hikes will not provide the same experience as a hike on our local open spaces. Hikers should have experience with off-trail terrain and should be comfortable in a wilderness environment. These properties are working ranches with untracked terrain. This includes steep, slippery/loose, rocky, and uneven surfaces. Ranch hikes may travel on existing dirt roads, but at times may require off-trail hiking over difficult terrain.

Please Bring:  Water, hiking shoes, sunscreen, hat, snacks if desired, and appropriate hiking clothing – layers!

Prepare: There may be overland hiking, ticks, poison oak, and rattlesnakes.

Distance: 2 miles; 500’ elevation gain.
