Hollister Peak is a 1,404-foot (428 m) volcanic plug located near Morro Bay, California. It is one of the Nine Sisters, and receives its name from the family that lived at its base in 1884. It was of religious importance to the Chumash. Hollister Peak is on private property but within certain days of the year the peak is open to the public to climb during holidays and for Indian tribes for religious purposes on the last week of September every year. The peak has about 5 visible trails on the east side and several other trails also on the west side of the peak which faces the 7th sister on Morro Rock.
