We did this hike for my birthday ! Great views with alternating challenges and easy strolls. It’s one of my favorites. Get there early to watch the sunrise, but light enough to be safe

Loved this hike! Saw people of all ages coming and going...it is a pretty steady climb to the top, but as many other reviewers have mentioned, well worth the beautiful views.

Often difficult to walk due to loose rocks and stumps. I needed to stop often to catch breath. Great view at the top. It was a great walk. I will come back again for sure.

Went around 11. A bit crowded but it was New Year’s Day. Lots of dogs on leashes minus one, who kept on having to call her dog to her as they would approach other dogs. Vultures were out. Fresh sage smelt great. Kid with drone kind of was a bit distracting noise wise. Lots of kids. Great hike for families. Would definitely go again, just at a less busier time. Wonderful views!

Great hike but really crowded.

Views from the top are incredible. If rain recently, trails can be very muddy, and difficult to pass. A lot of poison oak, long pants recommended.

Beautiful hike with magnificent views! Not to be missed if you are in San Luis Obispo Area!

Nice view and you can meander around the side trails to make it last longer. Short and sweet.

Great hike come early morning because it’s gets packed with hikers

Great view from the top, and we got to walk through a field of cows which I liked

The views from the top were amazing!!

Amazing views! Don't even think about doing it without water! :)

A good challenge to push up hill, with a rewarding view, nice loop option, and variety of plants along the way. As a run, a definite A, although some pruning of the surrounding chaparral was due when I went out as it was nearly impossible to pass without getting scratched by some of the woody shrubs. The eastern loop is fairly steep, which has some pros and cons, passing over some private property that has an easement which is also nice to see.

Steep 5 minute walk for 360 degree view of the canyon. Perfect for lunch and a book.

Great payoff at the top! We hiked a day or two after rain, so some of the lower stretches were muddy & somewhat slick. Pick a clear day, the views are incredible.

Fun hike if you want to spend time exploring the structures and great for amateur photographers.

Great trail any time of year, once you get to the top there are great 360 views. If you feel like going a bit further once you are towards the top, there is a trail that takes you to the next peak, Oats Peak.

Nice easy trail the whole family can do. Great ocean views. Only downer is there are no dogs allowed.

Sweet little trail that leads right out to the beach! The views are beautiful and the pathway is mellow. There are just two little spots that required some tedious, careful steps, but other than that it is super mellow.

Don’t be afraid to go towards the houses. You’ll take a pretty steep hike up to the swings that overlook SLO. Beautiful views. Fun hike.
