Jim Green Trail

The Jim Green trail begins at the end of Cortez Ave. winding around the north side of Chalk Mountain Golf Course, which is part of the county's 230-acre regional park. Named after the late Jim Green of Atascadero, an outdoor enthusiast responsible for the formation of many hiking and equestrian trails in San Luis Obispo county, the trail begins rather inauspiciously, being flanked by residential homes on one side and railroad tracks on the other, however, within a couple of hundred feet you start to experience more of a true "wilderness feeling." A large trail marker with information about the area will also come into view at this point and you will have to choose which direction to take as the trail is a two-mile loop. Open to hikers, equestrians, bicyclists, and dogs, the trail is an excellent spot for those who want a quick walk (about 40 minutes) that is neither too strenuous nor too easy. The trail is not open to motorized vehicles. Dogs are allowed both on and off-leash; however, leashed is probably preferable because of the prevalence snakes in the area. Visit Website

    Great trail!

    thoroughly enjoyed this trail with my senior dog. Not too strenuous and partial shade for most of it. There’s a bench halfway to rest and look out over a golf course. Go before 9a to beat the heat in July!!

    A Fun quick hike!

    i love taking the dogs on this trail. I prefer to keep them leashed due to rattlesnakes in the area, but if that doesn't bother you it's a good trail for offleash as well since it's not near any high traffic areas. A relatively easy hike - lots of shade and places to stop along the way.
