Amazing 360 view!

Best views are at the very beginning then it’s not very exciting after that.

Challenging hike through lovely terrain. Offers nearly 360 degree view of San Luis Obispo at its highest point.

Nice hike with beautiful views

Long drive but no access.

We'll definitely go again because I have a CA State Park Pass. It is a great and somewhat difficult trail. My advice would be to bring cash because there is a $10 parking fee if you don't have a pass.

I loved this hike it is easy and has great views along the coast. Lots of trees, coast and ocean. I would definitely do if I am in the area again. The dogs loved it too!

Beautiful trail! Harder than I had thought: better to bring plenty of water and a hat (shade is rare privilege over here). But you do get a wonderful view of the ocean once you reach the top!
Did it in four hours and I took my time.

Easy trail with gorgeous views

This was harder then I expected. It’s really uphill and pretty bumpy/rocky. Some beautiful views along the way. It’s 2.8 miles to the top. Would recommend when it’s not too hot out or cloudy day because there’s no shade.

On an overcast weekend morning, starting out at 9:15am, it was not crowded on the trail though parking was pretty full. A beautiful hike even with some clouds. The trail forks about halfway up. Stay to the left.

beautiful view & easy

Easy trail with great rewards. From the San Simeon pier, walk a 1/4 mile on the beach northward till a wide dirt trail ascends on the right. This is the main trail. Good views of the ocean until you turn away from the bay. You enter into a beautiful forest of cypress trees. Unfortunately the trees will block out your view for the next mile. There are some tree gaps or tunnels through the trees to a smaller rim trail the gives great views of the ocean. Unfortunately some of the trails are unstable and dangerous. Caution should be used. Past the cypress trees a narrow trails goes to the furthest spot with great ocean views. The wind can be brisk and cool even on a sunny day. Access to any of these remote beaches from the cliffs is not easy and should only be attempted by the most agile.

Trail is open.

Started the trail at the end of the road through the campground. A bit more challenging than moderate but some easy parts too. Didn’t finish the full loop since seeing a deer leg carcass and concerned of coming across a mountain lion or bear and was running alone. Ranger warned the campers that there are bears.

Finally made it up today! Pretty steep trail at certain spots but the views from the top are breathtaking! Highly recommend it.

This an moderate hike and the views are spectacular of the Central Coast and some Pacific Ocean. This hike is well worth doing, best in the spring when everything is blooming and it is not too hot, it was foggy on this particular day over the coast so could not see Morro Bay. This trail has both ticks and Poison oak as hazards if you get too close to the sides or go off trail. Rattlesnakes are very common here and warnings are out for Mountain Lions.
Ran into the Laguna Junior High Cross country team towards the end which was a shocker as I had the trail all to myself until I heard them coming! Narrow trail makes that more difficult.

Mostly doing flat land trails in Austin this is fantastic change. Beautiful views all the way up, if no marine layer obviously. I've seen folks from 6 to 86 on this trail. As a side note, I lost my wallet on the trail. After realizing later, we went back and found it by a billboard fully intact. Folks here are top notch. As a plus, multiple breweries within 2 miles once you're done. Enjoy!

Excelente ruta para dejar el estrés

The Bishop's Peak Felsman Loop is an easy hike and the views are spectacular of the Central Coast. This hike of of the Eastern side of Bishop's Peak is well worth doing, great all year long, maybe not so much in rainy season. This video was shot in the summer so very little of both ticks and Poison oak as hazards if you don't get too close to the sides or go off trail. Lots of wildlife if you look for it, mostly squirrels and rabbits so hawks can always be present. This is a prime horse trail so you will encounter horses at any time. Also, there are cows and turkeys around.

Such a fun trail! Great views at the top, and lots of fun things to play on. I had to keep an eye out for mountain bikers, but they were very respectful in sharing the trails. Its not too strenuous, but still enough to feel like you got a workout. I really enjoyed this loop.

I had no idea where I was hiking to.

Good hike not hard the elevation gain is spread out over two miles. It was overcast the day I hiked so I didn’t have much of a view from the top.

Did this hike last year, attempted today but the trail is closed. You might be able to push through but from what I saw it isn’t worth it. Hopefully the trail will be open by the end of the year.
Again as of today, the trail is marked as “closed” when you get there and the road is closed on your way there as well.

This was a decent hike. It was mainly foggy, so we didn’t get a chance to see the “nice” scenery. We started at 8am though, so you may want to wait until the fog lifts to actually enjoy it. The incline was fairly decent. We hiked next to a tower too, so we were able to access the Wi-Fi on our phones. Pretty chill hike!

Always a pretty hike no matter what the weather or season

It's the same starting point as a few other hikes, and a great one! I did this hike in mid August. It was really hot but doable and short. The view at the top was worth it. I also wasn't as crowded as I thought it would be.

Ticks! I was on the trail for 10 min and I pass a fisherman who was carrying his dog back to his car, he said he just pulled 20 ticks off his dog. I looked down at my legs and I had about 10 on me and 20+ on my dog!

The path was partly fire road going counterclockwise then narrowed to single track most of the way until you got to the peak. The peak was worth the constant “are we there yet?” feeling though. After the peak it was a wide fire road all the way down. Bring lots of water. Easily went through 2L as it was 80* and full sun. The views on Trespass trail are amazing!
No port a potty at the trailhead. Bring $2 for parking fee.
