Steep climb up but nice way back. Beautiful wildflowers.

Good workout mainly uphill.

I don't agree with the other reviewers -- the views are phenomenal. It's currently spring so there are poppies and other little flowers all over the place. There are some pretty panoramic views of the ocean and occasionally the suburbs. You can also keep walking even higher to bigger peaks, where you might find cute little succulents.

Decent and pleasant but wouldn’t go out of my way to do it. Good for big groups with varied levels of experience.

The views aren't special at all

Only negative is the limited parking, but it’s a great hike!

Moderate hike up to great vista point. A little busy in parts, lots of mountain bikes around. Partly shaded.

Great training route, the Crack Crack trail near the summit has some challenging terrain.

The road to Adobe Drive in Pacifica used to be known as Planet of the Apes Road by mountain bikers. Old road grade from McNee is easy to intermediate viewpoint for a short workout. Leaves out the final leg to Montara Mtn. About 1.5 hours.
