About Sweet Springs Nature Preserve in Los Osos, California

Sweet Springs Nature Preserve is a day-use area on the shores of Morro Bay in Los Osos, CA. The preserve is run by a local San Luis Obispo County group known as the Morro Coast Audubon Society. There is no beach access here, but there is a trail system that begins on Ramona Avenue about mid-way between Broderson Avenue and 4th Street. At the end of the boardwalk path there is a platform for looking across Morro Bay with Morro Rock towering in the distance.

The Audubon Society has recently opened an eastern section of this preserve called East Sweet Springs. It has an accessible trail leading to a large bird blind that looks out onto Morro Bay. The trailhead and parking spaces can be found at the corner of Ramona and 4th.

Sweet Springs Nature Preserve is a superb spot for watching for birds and other wildlife. It is open to the public daily from dawn until dusk. Visitors must remain on the trails and respect the rules of the preserve.
