Bishop Peak, San Luis Obispo Reviews

  • Such a wonderful hike! Sunrises and sunsets are absolutely breathtaking from the peak, but also great anytime of day. Lots of shade, rocks to climb and fun to be had.

  • There are 2 entrances, but to get a better workout from the hike I'd suggest coming up the Foothill entrance. The first part of the hike is a little steep and boring since you're only surrounded by brush and you're literally going straight and uphill, but after that it's a little more fun. The rest of the hike has multiple switchbacks, and parts of it involve climbing rocks to get to the top. The view from up top is so nice can see all of SLO county. It takes about an hour to get to the top and obviously much quicker getting down. Also, there aren't that many shaded areas, so I'd suggest going early in the morning or bringing lots of water.

  • I love this crag. The rock is solid and most routes are mixed sport/trad with a few pretty exciting trad lines. The climbing can be characterized as pretty slabby and technical. Bouldering and hiking and two other activities that can be done here.

  • Gorgeous, possibly the best highlight of SLO. Popular to make the sunrise. Didn't do this myself but did try to come early in the morning. Tends to get crowded in the afternoon. The trail is a bit rocky in some places. Probably not good for elderly. But a lot of kids seem to be on the trail.

  • Such an amazing place! It's a bit hard to find the way to the top if you haven't been there before, so make sure you have a map and/or follow the signs. There is a climbing area as well, which is more challenging then just a hike but more fun.
