Through the empty back roads and fragrant eucalyptus trees of Los Osos, you wind up at Montaña de Oro. It is no wonder why it was named the mountain of gold. Trails, wildflowers, creeks, hills and of course the deep blue pacific in the background make this park a pleasure to be at. If you ever wanted an endless view of the California coastline, this is the place to be. Seeing layers of the earth raising out of the sea is quite the sight. Climb over a huge mountain of sand to gain never ending ocean views.
