“A nice day hike offering cliffs and mountains alike.”— Tilman Giese
Right before you reach Oats Peak, make a sharp left turn to stay on the trail. Oats Peak offers a great vista of the entire Montaña de Oro State Park. Continue on Oats Peak Trail and keep left towards Valencia Peak Trail. Feel free to take the short spur up Valencia Peak before you head back towards the cliffs. The switchbacks on Valencia Peak Trail offer a great panoramic view.
