Great trail with a nice forest setting at the bottom and rock exposure near the top; great views unless the fog rolls in, can get windy and chilly near the summit

Beautiful, easy hike with slight but constant elevation on way up. Recommend coming down on same trail (vs doing loop) and only doing the Brooks Creek trail vs Montara.

An easy to moderate climb with well worn footpaths, gorgeous views of coast line, San Francisco and even a glimpse of GGB. Love the less trafficked upper trail with more exposed rocks and a wonderful view of the steep rock faces of the mountain.

I got there just before 9am and there were only two other vehicles there. I went alone and felt totally safe and absolutely loved it. It was uphill the whole time but it wasn’t crazy or too hard! Take water, for sure! And by the time I finished at 11, there were quite a few more vehicles and I was passing other people and could hear others on the trail. If you want more of a quiet solo hike, start early.

The trailhead has multiple hiking options. It costs $6 to park. We hiked the 2.5-mile loop trail on Montara Mountain, which was nicely shaded and had good views, including an ocean view and bench at the top. It was a pleasant, easy hike. Gently up a mile, then down 1.5.

A great hike with stunning views. We parked the car on the street since the Park closes at 5pm. It can be a strenuous hike. Take plenty of water.

Amazing views!!!

All in all a pretty good trail, arrived about 1230 and hiked till about 5, Trail is pretty well maintained and good for running as well as hiking, enjoyed the trails that we took, next time will arrive earlier to experience more of the trails available.. will definitely come again.

Great trail with beautiful views.

Great hike. Very few people using the trail. I would not rate this as difficult. Nice uphill hike not too steep. Great views.

beautiful trail. not too busy. spectacular hillside views.

Nice hike. Loved it. The first half mile has this beautiful eucalyptus trees. Early morning fog + the fragrance of eucalyptus was refreshing. It’s a steady climb but I wouldn’t classify it as hard.

Trail was clear and very well marked. Not too steep. Incredible vistas of the pacific and the city of SF. Perfect morning or afternoon hike. Completed in 2:30.

Dirt trail through a canyon to the summit looking out over Linda Mar Blvd to the ocean. It meets the Montara Mountain trail and winds down with switch backs through a forested area. The views are beautiful, starting with the quiet canyon, then from the summit you see the valley, and the ocean. There are benches a long the way to sit and take in the scenery. Saw lots of rabbits, lizards, and birds. Only 1 or 2 other hikers, but that was it. The elevation is 1646, not 646. I think they missed a "1" Took us about 1.5 hours with stops along the way. Great trail!

This trail is often foggy at the top. Check the weather (look out to the ocean for incoming fog) before starting!

Great hard hike

Awesome trail, good for kids

We saw hummingbirds and deer. Nice trail loop with benches along the way.

Nice trail, great views.

Relatively easy, well-marked dirt trail with quarter-mile markers. We did the Brooks Falls Trail on the way up and the Montara Trail on the way down with two kids in carriers. The toddler walked until he was tired - the trail is pretty easy for kids. The waterfall was only a small trickle, since it's been awhile since the last rainfall. Views are great (both mountains and ocean), and there are benches periodically for resting and lookout points. The trail is partially shaded, partially exposed to the sun.

Great walk. Did it with a 2.5 year old. It's uphill so something to consider.

Beautiful views, but I hiked this yesterday and had to turn around after 1.5 miles because of the overgrown poison oak, everywhere! The beginning of the hike is hard, but looked flat afterwards.

Loved this trail - it was relatively easy, secluded, and fun. Took about 1.5 hrs with stops for views.
