The easternmost hill in the Central Coast chain known as The Nine Sisters. A narrow dirt path switchbacks across the north side of the hill. At the top are great views of San Luis Obispo and The Edna Valley. Also at the top, a 10ft climbing pole for extra views

Beautiful views, but careful of the ball-bearing scree (decomposed granite on hardpan) on your way down!

Great little hike! We went early in the morning and it was a quick 30 minute or less hike! You can climb up the pole at the top to get a better view or everything. I love the little notebook at the top where people can write name, date, where they are from, etc! Perfect for trail running!

Nothing to look at until you reach the summit. Kind of boring.

Nice little hill to climb with a rewarding view of Edna Valley. This is a great short hike if you're pressed for time. I often come right after work on weekdays and catch the sunset from the top.

Great trail for a fairly quick workout (less than 1 hour total). It gets your legs, lungs, & heart going; not to mention your eyes when you reach the top. Fantastic 360° views of San Luis Obispo and the Edna Valley.
