Reservoir Canyon Trail

Reservoir Canyon Road
San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

This trail meanders primarily along dense riparian vegetation with occasional vista breaks. The trail is 6+ miles round trip and is rated moderate to difficult. This trail is best in the spring when wild flowers are abundant and water levels are high. Be cautious of poison oak, which prevails throughout the canyon year round. Follow the creek down stream to see two small water falls, the second cascading in front of a 70 foot deep cave.
