The El Moro Elfin Forest in Los Osos boasts a boardwalk hike for the kids.

Elfin Forest, Los Osos

In June, a friend and I took our children to the Elfin Forest in Los Osos. The 90-acre county and state park encompasses an estuary and woodlands with scenic walking trails. It also includes a pygmy oak forest and opportunities for some really awesome Instagram-worthy photography of your kids.
