The Nine Sisters in San Luis Obispo county, California is a chain of nine volcanic peaks.  Only five of the peaks are accessible since the remaining four are privately owned and have no public access. The route requires climbing each of the five peaks in succession.  It starts with Black Hill in the western part of the chain and consists of an out-and-back route to the top of Black Hill and return. It is allowed to drive from trailhead to trailhead to access each of the remaining peaks, heading further east with each peak.  The finish is at the Islay Peak Open Space Trailhed after having climbed from the Islay Hil Traillhead to the top and returned by the same route.
