Best Hike: Pismo Preserve

It didn't take long for the Pismo Preserve to take the reins as our readers' favorite hike in SLO County, and how can you argue with it? The freshly minted South County open space, which opened in January after years of anticipation, offers residents an 11-mile network of trails that meander through 880 acres of oak-studded coastal hills—offering incredible views of the Pacific Ocean along the way. Thanks to COVID-19, hikers only had a short taste of this open space, as the need for social distancing forced its closure in March. Good news though: The preserve recently reopened on July 6. Don't blow it, guys! Stay safe and keep your distance.
