Beautiful day w/o fog cover. Supposed to rain but didn't! This is an excellent short day hike. Loved the views of Diablo from the trail and the summit.

Date Climbed: Apr 2, 2009


Hiking in SPVCP, just kept on the trail until we reached a summit, which we discovered was Montara. Gorgeous views - really cool to see both the bay and the Pacific.

Date Climbed: Dec 16, 2008


A beautiful day on the mountain as always! Winter rains have receeded leaving the coveted crystal clear conditions on the peak. The views were amazing. Summited Peak Mountain, North Peak and two minor rocky peaks on the northwest side of the mountain.

huskertriguyIsolated MTB summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 21, 2008


Started in early evening from the beach trailhead. Parking lot was full, but most of these people by far were at the beach. Saw a total of 5 people on the trail, only 1 other cyclist. Had the summit to myself except for the obnoxious towers. Still, the panoramic views of the Bay and Pacific were worth it. Hustled back to the car for a refreshing post-ride beer.

tarolFoggy day so no view...


...from the top. But the trail was great, the manzanita bushes were blooming and I saw several banana slugs. I only passed one other person on the trail up from San Pedro Park.

This is one of my favorite mountaineering training hills; hiked it with my friend Dave (ndriley97), carrying ~8 gallons of water between the two of us. We were so impressed and shocked by the runners that were going up and down multiple times that we left at least a gallon behind instead of dumping it. What say you Karma Gods?!

NewDayRisingRoute Climbed: west ridge Date Climbed: dec 03 2006  Sucess!


the west ridge route runs parallel to the wide main route. it follows power lines up to the summit. to avoid the crowds i hiked a short distance up the main route and bushwacked to reach the overgrown west ridge. about 20 feet of bushwacking lead to the ridge. 24hrs later i was covered from head to toe in poison oak (all the leaves had dropped, so could not tell). needless to say i dont recommend this route.

Climbed Montara today with a small group of people. We were short for time, and as a result, took the shorter San Pedro Valley County Park route instead of the Montara State Beach route. Made it to the summit and back in just over two hours. The summit of the mountain was, unlike the majority of the climb, not shrouded in fog. Only the tops of Mt. Diablo, Mt. Tam, and some other ridges of the Diablo range were visible from the summit. On a clear day, this hike would be great.

Went with Rad. Made it from the parking lot to the summit and back in 2 hours. The summit was just above the fog layer, so we had a decent view of some distant peaks.

My favorite local hike. Usually very uncrowded, and great to do in any season. The weather is fairly unpredictable though, so be prepared. I've experienced rain, heavy fog, howling winds, and scorching heat on the summit - sometimes within a couple of months! The waterfall on the Brooks Creek trail is seasonal, so the best time to see it is late fall/winter.

Wonderful day, a bit breezy at the summit but the views were astounding. Made the trip in 2.5 hours. Hiked with hyperboliticans and a soon-to-be-summitposter Annette. Could see clear down to San Jose, Mt. Tam, Mt. Diablo, and of course the sea.

First summit in a long time, after running all fall and winter. Hiked during the March heat spell -- pretty sweaty weather, but clear.

Nice walk; fairly empty, just me and mountain bikers. Great cell phone reception at the top with all the radio attennas. 2 hours up and 1 hour down.
