Islay Hill Open Space

Islay Hill Open Space

Islay Hill at the eastern tip of the chain of volcanic plugs in San Luis Obispo, is the place to be for our four-legged adventurers. If Bishop Peak is the top dog in the Morro lineup, Islay Hill is the friendliest and easiest hike around (except for Black Hill). Note that dogs must be on leash.

Being the easternmost of all the Morros, Islay Hill serves up the best view of the Santa Lucia Mountains. It’s a fantastic spot for a panoramic overview of beautiful Edna Valley.

Right at the base of Islay Hill Open Space, you’ll find the tail-wagging five-acre Islay Hill Park. It’s got plenty of family-friendly activities and lots of space to frolic and fetch.
