Bishop's Peak is one of the most frequented hikes of the San Luis Obispo Area. With a 950ft elevation gain in an estimated 3 mile trek, the summit's peak rests at 1,559 feet. The hike is both demanding and rewarding - the panoramic views at the top of the nearby volcanic morros and San Luis Obispo City give breathtaking answers to those who seek its reward.
Bishop's Peak has the highest summit of the Nine Sisters. It is also a local hub for climbers. The massive boulders at the top provide climbers with anchor points. A great climbing opportunity for those who seek out a little more thrill from the peak.
For a rewarding beer and some great food afterwards, head to Morro Bay (Estimated 10-15 minute Drive) and checkout any of the Restaurants on Embarcadero (Morro Bay, CA 93442). You can enjoy your reward while you sit on the beautiful bay with stunning views of Morro Bay Rock.
- Hiking boots / comfortable Shoes
- Water (no access to a water source on the hike)
- Camera (don't miss out on some great views and memories)
