Outdoor and hiking enthusiasts love Oakmore due to its hilly meandering streets and proximity to Joaquin Miller Park and the Bridegview Trail along Sausal Creek. The trailhead is at the foot of Oakmore on Monterey Boulevard. Named after the American poet who once lived on the park’s grounds, Joaquin Miller Park features 500 acres of dense redwoods, oak trees, and pine trees. Since the park is dog friendly, this is a great location for morning/afternoon jogs with your pup, and the fenced-in dog areas are ideal for your furry friends to roam off-leash. When you live in Oakmore, you are just a 5-minute drive from this incredible public park.
