Some of the best views in the county can be seen from up there. Not the easiest place to access, but if you can drive up to the peak, it's worth it the dirt road you can take for miles if you wanna drive and explore further. Lots and lots of mountain bikers up there. Probably more so than any other spot I've seen. Definitely worth checking out. Very quiet and peaceful. Just beware of poison oak as it's everywhere up there. Highly recommend it.

Make sure to turn off in the Brake Check area on the 101 as you approach, or you will miss the trailhead. Loved the botanical reserve.

Hard to find. Look for the yellow gate. Weather was great.

Very steep the last 100 yards to the swing.

Beautiful botanical forest
