A beautiful and challenging hike up to the summit of Monument Peak. If you are looking for a memorable adventure, this hike is for you. Watch out for soaring hang gliders, as you take in stunning views of the valley and the Bay Area. Bring water and sunscreen, as this hike can get hot. Connect the Agua Caliente trail to Monument Peak Trail , After Summiting return via the Agua Caliente trail and Calera Creek Trail.

Beautiful open vistas. Check for tics after walk and keep alert for rattle snakes. Start early in day!

It was a very beautiful hike and Less crowded . It's not clearly marked . So we ended up taking a longer route than what we had planned . The view from the top was amazing . You can see ppl paragliding. Overall the hike was worth the views.

It is a long hike but did not seem to be very tough on the legs. Views of the mountains, valley and the bay are beautiful and can be seen through out the hike. You will get to see a lot of cows grazing on the trail, there were times where we had to go off the trial to not disturb them :). We went for the hike after the rain so the trail was a bit damp.

High quality run : long ascend, very technical - because of slope, mud and chaotic ground left by the local cows.
