Jack's Peak should be a spot on your radar if you are hiking with a furry friend or two, just heard a tsunami warning, ❤️ Monterey Pines, or had a late lazy feed and want a place to hike that offers some mid day shade while you burn off that breakfast burrito, beignet or benedict on some rolling forest hills. Some excellent bay views spanning Pt Lobos to Moss Landing and across the big blue to Santa Cruz. If you rolled back time 12 million years, Jack's Peak would have been an island in the Pacific Ocean. Most of your hike will be absorbing the vibes of the endemic Monterey Pine Forest, peppered with just enough poison oak to keep you from daydreaming. Be prepared with $5 cash for self registered parking. Otherwise, just outside the county park gates, there are 10 or so roadside parallel parking spots if you don't mind hiking, biking or skating in. Doggie poo bags available at the entrance kiosk if you forgot your own.
