This is a rare opportunity to hike up the slope of a more than 20-million- year- old volcanic plug. Your dog will be all wags from the smells in the lower oak woodland, while you’ll be thrilled with the panoramic views on the exposed slope. Bishop Peak is the highest of nine morros (volcanic plugs) in this pocket of Southern California. The Bishop Peak land was donated by the Ferrini family in 1995 and became one more gem in the city of San Luis Obispo’s crown of open- space parklands. The Bishop Peak trail begins in a residential neighborhood at the top of Highland Drive. Fence lines define the corridor off the street for about 100 yards before entering the oak woodland. At 0.1 mile you come to a fork on the right.
