Two hiking trails on Diablo Canyon Power Plant land are now open once again.

The Pecho Coast Trail is located on the south end of PG&E's property. Guided hikes are available on Wednesdays and Saturdays and reservations are required.

The trail takes hikers on a 3.75-mile roundtrip from the trailhead at the Fisherman's Memorial in Port San Luis to the Point San Luis Lighthouse and back.

The Point Buchon Trail is also now open Thursdays through Mondays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

It is a 6.6-mile roundtrip hike located on the northern end of PG&E property, accessible through Montaña de Oro State Park.

Hikers are required to stop at the trailhead check-in station to sign a waiver, and they must sign out at the check-in station 15 minutes before the trail closes.
