An informal Cal Poly tradition for those looking for a physical challenge with an amazing reward at the end. Hike to the Cal Poly "P' + 2 iconic peaks on the outskirts of San Luis Obispo and follow it with a legendary Tri Tip sandwich at the Firestone Grill in downtown SLO. Typically done in a day, so you might need to some order fries too. Note: peakery includes "Firestone Tri Tip" as a "peak" in downtown SLO; add your tri tip photos to your log of this edible "peak".
