Join Claudia and Karen to explore the multiple habitats of the rugged coastal park of Montana De Oro.

The walk continues along Islay Creek’s riparian habitat into the pine-studded campgrounds to observe passerines, woodpeckers and birds that call our coastal scrublands home. This is a gentle walk of about 1-2 miles along flat trails and paved road and is ADA accessIble.
