Johnson Ranch Open Space

The Central Coast offers an abundance of outdoor opportunities.  Located at the intersection of South Higuera and Ontario Road, Johnson Ranch is easily accessible to trail enthusiasts.  Covering 242 acres, the 3.5 mile loop is of moderate difficulty, attracting runners, hikers, mountain bikers, as well as the occasional unicyclist…can’t imagine navigating the terrain on a unicycle, yet the folks who do make it look easy!  It is a well-maintained, fun trail with rolling hills and beautiful views.  If you take a few minutes to read the sign posted at the base of the trail, you will learn about the history of the property along with information about the diverse population of wildlife. Aside from cows grazing, I’ve seen snakes, lizards, hawks, deer, foxes, and once upon a time ago, a family of wild boar.  I’ve attached a topography map showing the course.  Experience it clockwise or counter-clockwise, it’s a different experience each time.  Hope to see you on the trail!
