Rugged hiking trails, challenging mountain biking and leisurely scenic pathways can be found just minutes from downtown. Open spaces in and around SLO demonstrate the beauty and diversity that characterize California's famed Central Coast. Within just 5 miles of the city center, outdoor enthusiasts can find themselves exploring marshy wetlands, traversing mature growth woodlands or viewing hidden waterfalls.
