My friend was in town for the weekend and wanted to explore some of my favorite hikes.

  • Hike started in the dense, overcast fog. Eventually we found our way above it and the views were breathtaking.
  • Many, many wildflowers along the trail.
  • Made it to the summit!
  • The loop back was longer than expected. Fun to explore, but would have probably done an out and back next time. 


  • Location: Mt Montara, San Pedro Valley Park via the Gray Whale Cove trailhead.
  • Date: May 2022.
  • Stats: 3 miles with 1,700+ ft elevation gain

What a beautiful day.
