Cone peak road was closed, so hiked the 5-ish miles to the trailhead, topped out mid-afternoon with outstanding views of the Big Sur coastline. Didn't want to come down!

Nice warm up hike for other trips in the area.

Via the standard route from Coast Ridge Road in a bit over an hour each way. Gorgeous, sunny day and spring flowers in over abundance.

I made the quick hike up with my two dogs on a cool, clear evening. The views did not disappoint me!

WickedRuggedEasy Hike Up Cone Peak Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2008


Drove up Cone Peak Road 5.1 miles to the marked trailhead (next time I'll park at the first turnout at 4 miles and hike the road to the trail, as the road gets tougher to drive from there). Had a couple visitors from the East Coast, and the views did not disappoint. Clear day, almost no fog, incredible views!

rhyangNorth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2008


Hiked all the way up Cone Peak Road (6 miles), then about 0.75mi into the Ventana Wilderness, then cut west up to North Ridge, scrambled it all the way to summit.

Generally rotten rock, but at least the brush at this elevation wasn't bad and there appeared to be a use trail in places. Kept it to class 2-3-ish bypassing some of towers. Descended via the summit trail. ~13 miles / 3000' for the day, which was clear but windy (a storm passed through yesterday).

In past years I've come up via Cone Peak road or Trail Spring numerous times. Always a fun way to top off a trip to the south Ventana !

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2006


Summitted despite some of the worst insect swarms I've ever experienced. Should have brought a drysuit and a motorcycle helmet.

Nice and easy hike up along the Cone Peak Trail. Simply spectacular views of the Big Sur Coast from the summit. Hiked in spring when the ticks were out in full force - pulled several off of me along the way up.

The climb itself it quite easy...the road to the trailhead was a little more difficult! Great view, worthwhile hike.

Date Climbed: Mar 31, 2007


Headed up Stone Ridge to Twin Peak then ridge-whacked to Cone Peak, back down to Vicente Flat. Cross-country was not bad and the views and wildflowers were gorgeous.

...but when he was at the NPS, I was grateful to have someone so close to hit the Ventana with!

Date Climbed: May 1, 2005
A long dayhike from Vicente to the ridge road, then up to the summit. Descended on the ill-defined Gamboa "trail" (I use that term lightly here). Thousands of ticks on every bush and tree. A 25mi adventure that dumped us out on SR 1 over 3mi from our car.

theronmoondream come true  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2006


On a plant collecting trip I was able to finally make my dream come true. It was all clouds on the way up until summit break. With the grandest views i have ever seen. Watched the sun go down and the almost full moon come up. Favorite peak experience yet.
