Because it's Beautiful
A scenic ranch along Highway 46 West that offers sweeping views of the Estero Bay will be preserved in perpetuity, thanks to an agreement between the landowner and the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County.
The 1,779-acre Hill Ranch north of Cayucos was preserved in April through a voluntary agricultural conservation easement, according to a Land Conservancy news release.
...The ranch is known for its grazing land, oak woodlands and beautiful views. Travelers can take a break at highway turnouts above the ranch and catch a glimpse of Estero Bay, Morro Rock and Irish Hills...
...The land also is home to deer, bobcats, red-tailed hawks and other wildlife, in addition to the headwaters of Villa Creek and more than 2.5 miles of its stream.
