The Los Osos Elfin Forest is a unique area of pygmy oaks, coastal trails and beautiful views of Morro Bay and the area around it. This nature preserve has easy access to a well maintained boardwalk. This area seems relatively undiscovered by tourists. When we visited we met several people, but all were locals, either going for a run, looking for birds, or walking with children and/or dogs.

Directions: From South Bay Blvd, go to Santa Ysabel Avenue and turn toward the coast. Take any of the first three streets to the right, and trailheads are just a few yards ahead at the end of the street.
