“A terrific singletrack circumnavigating Cerro San Luis Mountain.”— Chris Fa
Entry to this trail is one mile on the main trail from the Cerro San Luis parking lot. After passing the gate and entering Madonna Inn property, take the second fire road intersecting the main trail. Directly after turning left onto the fire road the entry to the trail will be a fairly obvious singletrack trail on your right.
There are multiple intersections to trails running down into a residential area or up to Cerro San Luis Peak and it terminates at the Lemon Grove Loop on City of San Luis Obispo property. To follow the trail at each intersection stay straight and continue at a generally constant elevation. Bring along the Hiking Project mobile app if you're worried about getting lost.
