Runner Notes

Be careful of mountain bikers–they are the dominant trail users in this park. There are many blind tuns and because of the isolation they don't expect there to be any trail-runners out there.

Description

From the Eucs MTB park, follow a fire road on the north side of the park and hang a left before it dead ends. This is the beginning of Shooters Trail. Continue on Shooters for a few hundred meters to a 3-way intersection and take the left fork, this is the beginning of Morning Glory Trail.

The flora immediately changes from the Irish looking scenery common to San Luis Obispo to a more scraggly, rugged scenery characterized by high brush and small evergreens. The trail is very rocky, making it much easier to go up than down. For this reason I suggest any loop done in this area following Morning Glory/Botanical uphill and Shooters downhill. There are several small stream crossings when it rains. The grade is consistent and moderate with well-built switchbacks.
