“Great hiking trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Bishop Peak offers a wide trail semi challenging roughly three miles to the top. Start at the trail head off Highland Drive, much more scenic than starting off Foothill Blvd

“Nice workout hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We had a little trouble finding the start of the hiking trail but it was worth it. Lots of young people charging up and down the hill but it was really beautiful and we got the workout we came for.

“Fun hike and great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

A must do when in SLO area, a bit of a calorie burner, but well worth the climb on well maintained trails. Can be a bit busy on weekends.

“Tough but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This mountain hike is TOUGH (for me, at least) but the view from the top is INSANE!!! It makes the whole hike worth it. Coming down was a little rough on my knees, but still... NO REGRETS :)
