$1.3 million trail at Montaña de Oro State Park opens ahead of schedule

California State Parks

A $1.3 million trail improvement project at Montaña de Oro in San Luis Obispo County is now complete.

California State Parks says work on the Bluff Trail was completed ahead of schedule and will be open for the Thanksgiving weekend. Work began in early January and was scheduled to continue through December.

Ranger Rob Colligan says he believes with the predicted warm weather there will likely be a lot of activity on the trail tomorrow.

The project was designed to improve access under Americans with Disabilities (ADA) guidelines.

Highlights of the completed work include two new restrooms, trail resurfacing, a new bridge and improved scenic overlooks.
