Cerro San Luis is located in San Luis Obispo and rises to an elevation of 1,292 feet.  It's one of seven volcanic plugs that run from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay (this chain is known as The Morros).  This chain of peaks was once a string of active volcanoes 20 - 25 million years ago.  All that remains now  are the plugs of congealed lava that filled the deep parts of vents for those volcanoes.  A good network of trails and roads exist on Cerro San Luis offering a variety of riding terrain from the technical and rocky sections on the upper half of the mountain to grass, chaparral, and oak woodland on the lower half.
