What an absolutely beautiful place! Thanks to all the moisture the wild flowers were abundant. We saw plenty of lizards, and also interacted with a coyote. The views here are beautiful, this is just a very peaceful place to visit. We enjoyed 10 minutes of yoga on the summit!
Hiked a 9-mile loop - started at Hidden TH then went to the vernal pool then back to the adobes and around the Adoebes Loop and then out the Punta Mesa Trail then up the backside of Monument Hill then back to the TH via the Oak Tree Trail. The weather was gorgeous, the views amazing, wildlife abundant, wildflowers just starting to bloom, and huge gorgeous oak and sycamore trees. Wonderful place to see what all of California used to look like, so glad it was preserved! Going to go back in a month or so to check out the wildflowers. I hear there are chocolate lillies :)
