Nipomo, CA on the Central Coast is on track w/ supporting the trail system on the mesa.
Existing Trails and/or dirt roads from the Woodlands area golf course on NW end of the mesa run South down to
the hub of the Nipomo Horse Community Park trail system and sub trails along the axis are suitable for horses. More
are planned. Nearby Lake Lopez, Lake Margarita and the Los Padres Nat'l forest also provide opportunities for horse
people to enjoy.
Nipomo, the southern-most community in San Luis Obispo County, is also one of the fastest growing, with a 57%
increase in dwelling units since 1990. Home to lots of growing families, Nipomo is one of the younger communities
in San Luis Obispo County.
Like many communities in San Luis Obispo County, Nipomo has a colorful history tied up with the Spanish settlement
of the area over 200 years ago. The Dana Adobe was the center of the huge rancho of 37,000 acres granted to Captain
Dana after he became a Mexican citizen in 1835. The preservation of this adobe is a present from local volunteers
to all of the visitors and residents of the county.
One part of the past is preserved in the Nipomo Native Gardens, located at Camino Caballo and Pomeroy. A profusion
of native trees and plants is maintained by another cadre of volunteers.
Horse enthusiasts can keep up to 3 horses on each acre. Good Trail access; close to Nipomo Park and the
