The Old San Pedro Mountain Road Climb is arguably the most historically significant ride in this book (see sidebar). Today hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bikers can relive 100 years of Montara Mountain crossings, and even the original Portola Expedition, by climbing the old San Pedro Mountain Road (also known as Pedro Mountain Road) to the top of Montara Mountain. See the Circuito de Montagna Montara for a description of the mountain. Note that Montara Mountain rises to 1,898 feet, and this ride,topping out at 1,837 feet, nearly reaches the apex. Granted, it is not an easy outing, with a steady 5 miles of climbing over an elevation change of about 1,700 feet.
