Took Waterfall Trail from the visitor's center to Mesa Trail and then up to Snivley's Ridge. Really good views along the ridge trail and the climb isn't too hard.

Steady uphill climb from 200 ft to 1600 ft. Great views of Garzas Canyon, Monterey Bay and Laureles Grade. Lengthen the downhill trail down by taking some alternate side trails, all pretty much getting you back down to the visitors center.

Great hike this morning with my daughter! Definitely a difficult venture but with plenty of water and determination on this 80 degree winter day, we made up to the top to see the awesome panoramic views.

This is the best trail ever. It's very difficult, but soooooo worth the view when you get to the top. You can see all the way out to the ocean. Dog friendly trail.
