Day 942: Pirate's Cove - Avila Beach - San Luis Obispo

The Cave at Pirate's Cove

Day #942 * Hike #1193 * New Track #925
Pirate's Cove - Avila Beach, CA
Saturday June 15, 2013
My Tripometer: 1 Hour * 1.5 Miles * +100 Feet


 Trailhead

Directions:
From the 101 Freeway about just south of San Luis Obispo, take the Avila Beach Drive exit and head towards the ocean.  About two miles up, turn left on Cave Landing Road (across from the golf course).  The road takes you up a hill and all the way back to a dirt parking lot.  Park your car and begin the short trek to the cave...

 Stay on main trail - right path leads to overhang...

 Turn right to reach the sea cave

 and there she is...
 
Hey, don't run through the cave.  On the other side is a straight drop down into the ocean, yikes!

 Pelicans and a pier on the other side

 Dangerous Drop!

 Heading back the other way, to the beach...

 The Beach...

 Use the rope to get down...


Nudest Colony by the Volley Ball Net!!!
 
I saw this from the distance so we turned back.  Other than the old biddies, this was a pretty cool spot...
