  • Hidden gem! Pretty quiet area with several well marked trails. There's even a sign warning you about poison oat. Not overrun by tourists. Guard at the gate was super friendly. Great for families.
  • Gorgeous views of both Monterey Bay and Carmel Valley. The skyline trail was an easy hike for kids.
  • Jack's Peak Park provides great views of the Monterey Bay, as well as some nice clean forest air. It's a short but very uphill hike or walk from Monterey. The only reason I don't provide 5 stars is that it has no bicycle racks. It has always shocked me that a town with so many bicycle events and a great trail does not have racks at its natural parks. They could install a rack and a basic tool set (pump, multi-tool) for less than $1,000.
  • This is one of my favorite hiking spots in Monterey. I usually walk from the bottom gate, but you can also drive up to the picnic area and hike from there. If you walk up there's no entrance fee! Lots of different trails and beautiful views of both Monterey and Carmel Valley.
  • Quiet and one of the best views of Monterey. Great for small and longer light hiking
