Cerro San Luis Obispo Professional Review and Guide

"Cerro San Luis Obispo is the large morro looming over San Luis Obispo with the big "M". It stands for Mission School, mot Madonna or McDonald's. The trail up to this volcanic peak has great views of Laguna Lake and Bishop Peak. From the summit there are views of San Luis Obispo, the Santa Lucia Mountains and the chain of morros to Morro Bay."

Great Hike. This hike is easy enough and short enough that it would be appropriate for most fitness levels. The views from the top are truly 360 degrees of the area. Make sure you make the extra effort to make it to the radio tower because it really has the best view. Compared to Bishop Peak this hike has much better views.

Nice Trail. Usually hike when it is wet in the area as the trail is mostly rock and stays dry. Some people refer to the mountain as Madonna Mountain. Glad to see that the M on the mountain is cleared up. They do a great Easter sunrise services on the mountain.
