By my standards it was a hot day, but Annette and I very much enjoyed this nice little hike. The distance is relatively short, but gives you a good elevation gain workout in the process. Nice views from the top!
Good way to spend a day off. Weren't many views due to low hanging clouds though.
I used to climb Monserate all the time when I lived in Oceanside. It is a fun short hike for when you only have an hour or two to hike.
