Fisherman’s Beach is the smallest of the beaches in Avila & Port San Luis Harbor and its called dog beach by the locals. No matter what time of day it is, you will more than likely find dogs running free through the surf. The Port San Luis Harbor District currently allows well behaved dogs to be off the leash anytime on this beach and Olde Port Beach. Please make sure to keep your dog under control and pick up after your dog so we don’t lose this privilege. Also please remember to remove all your trash when you leave as anything you leave behind will end up in our oceans!!!

Jim Green Trail

X
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.

The last beach near the point at Avila Beach has a lot of dogs that are off-leash; although it's posted they are not allowed between 10am-5pm we saw LOTS during that time frame.

Parking is along the road and access is free.
