Easy and enjoyable

Always a favorite

Love this trail great views.

This particular route is the most commonly hiked trail at this trailhead (the others are the Lemon Grove Loop and the off shoot trail up to the "M"). Steep and rocky in some sections, particularly at the end of rainy season as the fire road portions of the trail sustain erosion and seems to be irregularly graded. Fantastic views of the valley and on a clear day, you can see to Morro Bay. Not a lot of shade, so best times to hike are before 10 am and after 4:00 PM (summer). The park closes at dusk, so in the fall and winter, set out by 3:30 PM at the latest as there is a pretty steep climb/descent at the bottom third of the trail that is tricky to negotiate as the sun is setting.

Decent hike!

Really nice views. rocky in places. Split in trails not always well marked.

Great little trail for a hike, but not as worth it for mountain biking. The parts of the trail that would be the most fun to bike ( that take you to the overlooks ) are foot travel only.

Good sister hike to Bishops Peak, a bit less difficult to manage.

This trail gives you a wonderful workout. Really working your legs as the trail is uphill and rocky.

The views even halfway up the trail are beautiful.

very nice.. a little hard but not horrible.... recc teens and adults only though

Great hike , awesome views

Awesome hike.beautiful. Some what difficult. Great place to take picnic on the summit.

There are a couple different options on this particular trail. We missed taking the main trail all the way to the top. But will definitely come back to do that part! We did end up taking the trail to the "M", which wasn't too far in, nor too steep in my opinion. Because it's been raining the trail was a little muddy in some areas. However, because of the rain, the views overlooking the mountains and city of San Luis Obispo where amazingly lush! We also had the joy of coming across two small waterfalls, one on the way to the "M" and another on the way to the Lemon Grove trail. There is also a side trail towards the bottom, that goes a little off the main trail, where we came across a little cactus ravine with a small stream running through it. So many things to see and take in. It was a nice adventure.

Good hike to stretch your legs out, especially since getting there from 101 and hopping back on can be done in a quick second. Beautiful views of Morro Bay and Pismo as you get to the top! First half gets the heart pumping, but it's nothing strenuous. Lots of small rocks on the path and prickly pear off the path on the way up.

amazing view..fun easy hike

Like hiking this trail often great views at the top

Long and rocky in places but good view

Looked like a pretty hike but it's not actually dog friendly so we went to Cerro Alto instead.
