The city of San Luis Obispo prides itself on surrounding open space where dog-friendly hiking trails dot the hillsides. The most popular and certainly the most rigorous of these day hikes is local landmark Bishop’s Peak. Tallest of the Nine Sisters, Bishop’s Peak is a 3.5-mile, out-and-back trek with an elevation change of more than 1,200. Named for the crown of volcanic rock that resembles a bishop’s miter, Bishop’s Peak was once used to quarry rock for the city of San Luis Obispo and for the First Presbyterian Church downtown. more »
