Solid hiking with rewarding views of Santa Maria Valley

Hike, mountain bike, or trail run the Rice Ranch Trail in Orcutt, CA. This park is relatively small, but a great place for a hike or run. I did a 3 mile loop and could easily have added on a couple more miles. Hike up to water towers at the top and enjoy views overlooking Santa Maria Valley and out to the ocean on a clear day. 

Pro Tip - If you end up parking at the community center, take the path down, past the dog runs and across the street, and you'll see the trailhead.
