Seven Mile Drive
Although hiking is a very popular activity for those who visit Los Osos there is plenty for the those who prefer to stay in their cars to see and do as well. Many visitors make a special trip to take what is known as the “Los Osos Scenic Seven Mile Drive”. This is a stretch of road that runs from Los Osos township itself along the Los Osos Valley Road until it becomes Pecho Valley Road and you reach the entrance to the Montana de Oro State Park. Along the way you will be treated to spectacular views of the Morro Bay and fortunately there are a number of turnouts where you can safely stop and take photographs.
Direction: From either the north or south- On U.S. 101 take the Los Osos/Baywood Park exit and turn west onto Los Osos Valley Road. The Scenic 7 Mile Drive is indicated in red.
From Los Osos Valley Road and South Bay Boulevard head west through the town of Los Osos for 1 1/2 miles. You’ll pass the famous old Schoolhouse on the right, nestled in the trees of Los Osos Community Park
