Delight in three state parks, the glassy shores of the Back Bay, a pristine National Estuary, Elfin Forest, and a sweet preserve perfect for birding, kayaking, hiking and biking with family and friends
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif., Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Surrounded by the south shore of Morro Bay and filled with forests, preserves and outdoor adventure, nature lovers are drawn to the quaint seaside towns of Los Osos and Baywood Park. Very much off the beaten tourist path, Los Osos sits on the southern tidal estuary of Morro Bay, with a glassy bay, and an Eden of feathered wildlife. With its mild climate and friendly population of about 15,000, Los Osos lives up to its positive reputation offering a great climate perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, golfing, and endless hiking, biking and tide pooling. The bayside neighborhood of Baywood Park has its own identity as a picturesque park right on what locals refer to as the "back bay" that is surrounded by wooded stands of eucalyptus trees. Just a stone's throw from Montana de Oro State Park, Morro Bay State Park, and the Morro Bay Bird Sanctuary, Los Osos and Baywood Park is an ideal sanctuary for humans, too, offering an ideal base camp for excursions along the Central Coast. Once you visit, you soon understand why the gentle creator of Gumby and Poky, the much-revered Arthur Clokey, spent his final years here.
