This loop hike lies within the Laguna Lake Open Space portion of Laguna Lake Park in the city of San Luis Obispo. The park also features developed facilities outside of the open space, including picnic areas, a playground, and an off-leash dog park. The open space encompasses 360 of the park's 375 acres. The route starts from the Laguna Lake Trailhead at the far end of the park's entrance road. There are restrooms and a small parking lot here. This is also the location of the off-leash dog park, and is heavily used by local pet owners. There is no sign formally marking the start of the trail, but an obvious path leads northwest away from the parking lot. After a few hundred yards, there is a sign marking the boundary of the open space, and a wooden gate. Just past the gate, go right on an unmarked trail, avoiding the more obvious path that continues straight. This is the Laguna Lake Upper Loop Trail. The trail gradually rises along the south slope of Peak 568', aiming generally north.

Good walk with fresh air from the ocean and hot sun. Very fat and mild, good for old people.
