Thank you Orcutt Trails 2022 Runners and Volunteers!
This is why we at Santa Maria Valley Open Space have been building and supporting trails in the Santa Maria Valley for almost 20 years.
Los Flores Ranch Park is the first of its kind regional open space park in the Santa Maria Valley. At 1,778 acres (nearly 2.8 square miles), the property lies about eight miles south of Santa Maria in the Solomon Hills. The park offers the public a rare mix of environmental education, land preservation and recreation, with about eight miles of hiking/equest-rian/mountain biking trails.
