Hike up to the summit of East peak for stunning 360 views of the Bay Area and the Ocean. Start from the Mountain Home Inn and go up the Gravity Car Fire Rd. to the Old Railroad Grade, then take the Fern Creek Trail to the summit.

Steep for a while at the beginning. The fire road and second road has a bunch of bikes. Not that great until fern trail. Then at the top there’s a parking lot so not too secluded. Eh ok hike. There are others.

Crazy steep at the beginning but totally doable, and once you hit the fire road it mellows out...until the stairs :) Big elevation gain in a short distance, my reading was 1,600 total not the 1,300 listed. Great workout and spectacular views if you’ve only got a couple hours.

Awesome hike and views, love Fern Creek Trail although it gets a bit congested; make sure to start early and have lunch at the many picnic tables near the Visitor's Center just below the summit.

This was a really great hike. I loved it. The Bootjack trail along the creek is beautiful.
