davidsangerwith South Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2014


From San Pedro Valley County Park. Pleasant winding trail tip to ridgeline fire road. Tagged Peak Mountain (1820+ fee) along the way. After reaching the North Peak, slipped over to the South Peak which involved some rock-hopping among dense poison oak. Did not make it to the further Montana Knob, which promised more of the same.

With my family (Matt and Nora). We topped out just barely above the marine layer after a foggy, but interesting hike. Did a couple of nearby bonus peaks as well.

Parked at the second, smaller easterly Montara Beach parking area, just room for a half dozen cars. Hiked up the North Peak Access Road to top, then back down to turnoff signed "To Pacifica, Linda Mar" hiked up this to 4-way junction, went left past bench and up to San Pedro Peak. Fog on Montara Mountain socked the route in about half way up with no more than 50 feet visible at the top.

Good workout but it was foggy, thus not the best view from the peak.

Went to the 2 main peaks with the towers and over to the west peak which has arguably the best views. Came up from Montara Beach regular route. Nice day, good clear views, lotta people coming and going.

Having grown-up 150 miles from the ocean, this one was a treat when I first moved here on a Sierra Club day trip.

Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2012


I really enjoyed the coastal fauna on the Brooks Creek trail. Light clouds kept the temperature in check, but allowed for views.

trexkerryLonger driving than hiking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2011
Looking to beat the heat so thought this would be good - and it was, the hike is fantastic but to drive over here from the far east bay is tough. Repeated the hike in 2012.

Hiked to the top of North Peak from Montara State Beach. The views from the trail were great, but the summit was covered in fog. Here is a more detailed trip report:

This is the first time I've been at a trailhead parking lot shared by surfers. Hung out on the beach after hiking. I could get used to this.
