At over 900 acres, the Pismo Preserve offers truly exceptional and diverse recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors will enjoy over 10 miles of existing ranch roads and trails that meander throughout the property offering ready-to-use routes ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. These trails traverse serene oak woodlands and coastal ridgelines with stunning panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean stretching from the Irish Hills to Point Sal.
Located just off California’s scenic Highway 101, existing access off Mattie Road provides an ideal location for establishing visitor parking with ample room for horse trailers. Additionally, trails on the Pismo Preserve will provide connections to and from several major hiking and biking trails.
NOTE: Access to the Pismo Preserve is allowed ONLY during docent-led hikes, bike rides, runs, and horse rides. Visit the Land Conservancy website to view the Events Calendar. Simply click on a docent-led hike to sign up.
