Pismo: Tour of the Nine Sisters


A ride to Morro Bay and back through SLO that takes in all nine of the major morros. (There are over 20 major and minor peaks that make up the Morros.)

The Santa Lucia chapter of the Sierra Club lays it all out here:

Some highlights:
1) Morro Rock: a Peregrine Falcon sanctuary
2) Black Hill: inside Morro Bay State Park; possibly named from black tar seepage
3) Cerro Cabrillo: also part of the State Park
4) Hollister Peak: gorgeous rocky outcrops; not open to public use
5) Cerro Romauldo: partially on land owned by the state; National Guard uses it for fitness training
6) Chumash Peak
7) Bishop Peak: tallest; some of it is protected natural area
8) Cerro San Luis : in the heart of SLO
9) Islay Hill: under siege by housing development

Starts in: San Luis Obispo, CA, US
Distance: 56.3 mi
Elevation: +2372 / -2380 ft
