Railroad Bike Path, SLO, San Luis Obispo California

Description

The Railroad bike path has views of the hills all around and yellow flowers in the spring. It is only a short bike path, a little over a mile, but it connects runners with other parks and trails such as the Terrace Hill short hike and Sinsheimer Park, which connects with Johnson Park. Sinsheimer Park has an incredible playground with huge slides, a giant cable, and a lion drinking fountain.
Take a little detour at the opening where Bishop Street dead ends and walk around this pretty neighborhood. There are flowers galore in the landscaped gardens on the hilly streets.
If you take the Jennifer Street pedestrian bridge (on the north end of the bike path), you will come to a cute block where there are some cafes: Sally Loo's Wholesome Cafe, My Thai, and Bon Temps Creole Cafe.
