Like most of the trails in San Luis Obispo this one is really nice and very well-maintained. There’s a couple of places with the signs should be a little more clear when it comes to which way to go on the fork in the trail. Other than that it’s a lovely trail with lots of incline up and down and benches scattered sporadically here and there to stop and rest with lots of places to take in the view.

Nice trail! Hardly saw anyone out there, and it was a Saturday. Even came across some painted rocks. Nice views, can get a bit toasty in the open areas, so bring plenty of water.

HikingGreat!

Such an understated trail since it is right next to bishop but over quarantine this trail became my absolute FAVORITE. I recommend starting at Patricia Dr. entrance to get more action in. Very pretty and shows good views of SLO and it’s nice how it is very trail running friendly. I made up my own little “quarantine triathlon” where I would start at where I lived (The corner of Foothill and California) and run down California, take a left on Highland, and then a right on Patricia. Then i would hike/run the loop and then walk my way to the Foothill area to get myself a coffee/SloDoCo donut and then head home. 10/10 recommend if you have some time to kill and need to leave the house. If you don’t have a lot of time this is the best hike to supplement in a busy work day or if you are sore from other activities!

Quick hike! Lots of off shoots on the trail to make it longer if desired. Beautiful views when it is not smoky outside.

Fun trail for trail running because of the level changes. The bushes on the sides were not trimmed, so I’m definitely going to need to check for ticks. The trail signs are confusing, so I relied on this map to keep me on the correct trail at forks and connectors.

We did this with our 7 and 9 year old girls and our french bulldog on probably too hot of a day. We made it, but we went through a lot of water and had quite a bit of whining. Choose a cooler day for this one.

Explored the Bishops Peak foothills today. Have to try again when I have time/patience & research more. Lots of the space was either one way or closed due to Corona /social distancing. Definitely didn’t want to get lost up there. #happyearthday

You only get about a mile of loop due to the pandemic most of the loop is closed off. Saw multiple people disregarding postage that parts of trail were not open. Still a beautiful hike, we decided to loop twice to get the two miles in! Can’t wait to go back for the full trail!

Trail was in excellent shape today with great visibility and lots of green landscape given the late fall and winter rainfall.
