Named because it resembles a bishop's hat, the highest peak of the Morros range is heavily used by hikers and bicyclists. The climb to the top will take anywhere from one to two hours depending on your fitness level.

We had 4 people in our hiking group ranging from age 32 to 63 years and all body shapes/sizes. If you can walk for a couple of hours you will be fine, really. The course is a tad challenging in a way that there are...More
This is one of the most popular hikes in San Luis Obispo. Sometimes it can be crowded, with college kids. Make sure you bring water and allow at least 1.5 hours round trip. It takes about 1 hour to go up (or longer depending on...More
First, it is kind of strange to be reviewing a mountain, nevertheless, I can see how it's useful.
This is a good hike, not a walk in the park. Come prepared. Bring sunscreen and water. It's a nice hike. San Luis County has many hikes....More
This is a must see view of San Luis Obispo. Start at several places, but I usually start along Foothill Blvd, just outside the city limits. You'll see parking on the Bishop Peak side of the road. The first part is a little steep but...More
Lovely hike on a Saturday Birthday morning with two dear friends. Can be strenuous toward the top if you’re not somewhat active. Take water and a snack. There are a couple of benches at the top. About 4.5 round trip from the Patricia trailhead. I...More
First, please don’t make our mistake by starting on the Foothill Blvd. side of the mountain. That hike starts straight up the mountain and is pretty steep and requires some rock scrambling. Start at the trailhead and the hike will be moderate (in our minds,...More

Yes, you can take your dog on a leash, I Never do. There is poison oak on the trails and in the dust. I have lived here many years and even if the Oak does not get too your dog or you, it may get to others around you down the line. I have experienced too many cases of this happening. If you do take your dog then bathe them immediately after. That's my 2 cents. I have done this hike many times. San Luis Mountain is much more conducive to have dog on the train.
I am always cautious and generally do not hike in bad weather. The drainage is good on this trail. If there were any question of lightning, definitely would not go. Even on good days, I am always mindful of where I place... More
I am always cautious and generally do not hike in bad weather. The drainage is good on this trail. If there were any question of lightning, definitely would not go. Even on good days, I am always mindful of where I place my feet. I only do Bishop's Peak in fair weather.
