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

This is a great 1.8 mile quick trail. I do it on my lunch when I need to get out of the office and burn calories. Great scenery, with a steady uphill and narrow path. You'll see a cow when you've reached the top.

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!
