The Bob Jones Trail was envisioned to join the communities of San Luis Obispo and Avila Beach via a trail along San Luis Obispo Creek. Two sections of the trail currently exist. A 2.5 mile trail from Avila to Highway 101, and a 1 mile section from Prado Rd to Los Osos Valley Rd in San Luis Obispo. Connection of the trail between these two sections is the current focus.
