Event Notes:

From the restroom meeting spot we will be taking the Montara Moutain Trail up to the North Peak Summit. Depending on the weather, we may return via the Brooks Falls Trail to make this a partial loop otherwise it will be an out an back. The hike will be 7 to 8 miles with an approximate total elevation gain of 1800 feet. This hike will be somewhat strenuous due to elevation change and some of the trail can have some steep grades getting to the summit. We will be passing through a forest of eucalyptus as we gain elevations. On clear days there will be some views of the ocean and the town of Pacifica as we ascend. I have seen many small rabbits in this park along the trails. At the summit, there can be views of Mt. Diablo, the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco. Parts of the trail can narrow to a single track with an abundance of poison oak. The weather can vary greatly, so dress in layers and bring at least 2 liters of water as there will be no water available on the trail. There are restrooms at the parking lot only. No dogs are allowed in the park.
