INFORMATION ABOUT THE BISHOPS PEAK TRAIL.
1. As mentioned, this trail is about 2.2 miles one way. It is good hike so make sure you bring a backpack full of goodies, water and anything else you might need to stay safe. The hike will take you about 3 hours unless you are in super shape and run half the way. 2. Directions to the Trail:Of course the directions depend on where you are coming from. First, get on hwy 1 in San Luis. Right here is when you need a GPS device. However, there are few people in the USA that still use actual paper maps, like we do. We have provided a map to help you find the trail. In this neck of the wood California Hikes with a GPS or without a GPS. California Hikers are a brave bunch and if a person has the hiking bug they will find a way to the trails starting point.
No GPS - Off hwy 1 go west on Foothill Blvd. From San Luis Obispo head west toward Los Osos on Foothill Blvd. Turn Right on Patricia Drive. Head straight until you reach the stop sign at Highland Drive. Continue straight for 1/4 mile. On the left you will see three black post blocking an open driveway, and a sign "TRAIL" marking the entrance. As a courtesy to neighbors, please park on the Bishop Peak side (west) of Patricia Drive away from homes. Maybe the map below will help you find the trail head.
3. One Review of the trail Gina, a fellow hiker, had this to say about the Bishop Peak Trail, "If you're ever in San Luis Obispo & up for some outdoor fun, go climb bishop peak! It's a mild-to-mod nice hike. Roundtrip took us approximately 1hr & 45min. I think the toughest part of the hike was the end when you had to climb through huge rocks to get to the "peak." It gets a tad bit windy up there, so be careful. You get an awesome 360 degree view from up top, and you get a good view of the cal poly campus as well.
