360 degree view of Monterey Bay, San Benito Valley, Salinas Valley, and the Santa Lucia Mountains east of Big Sur. The trails are very nicely up-kept, and wide enough for two people. For the less eager there is a great resting spot with a view south toward Salinas, a wooden bridge and a bench looking out south. In the summer heat, refuge can be found in the shade of the alcove behind the bench and north of the bridge.

very dependent place. We were there today 1/1/2017 (yes, new year's date). It was 38 degree, super super windy with mist. For some, it wouldn't be fun but we liked it. We felt like walking in clouds and with strong misty wind, our minds were blown. It should be a great trail on sunny day as well. Go!

A georgeous little loop that's absolutely worth the drive (which is beautiful in itself).

This trail is awful. The flies in this park are relentless (no amount of bug repellent helped quell the hordes of them incessantly following us EVERYWHERE) and the park staff does a terrible job of trail upkeep. Virtually no path to follow, overgrowth, and not many trail heads to be found.

Came here all the time growing up, it's especially beautiful when the clouds are low and you walk up into them

Beautiful place! Nice views! When it's clear- you can see as far as Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz. Sunsets & Sunrises are the best from this amazing place. Definite must to explore!

The view of the coast and the valley from the peak is breathtaking, especially at sunset!! Just be sure to know what poison oak looks like because the sides of trails are teaming with it.
