Rock Mountain Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The rough, steep trail (the remains of a bulldozed track) wastes no time on its ascent up the west and south slopes of the mountain. You pass through an agreeably scented mix of coastal sage-scrub vegetation, serenaded at times by birds singing and flitting through the undergrowth. After about 0.7 mile, the graded track starts to descend, heading east. You’ll want to stay left, heading north toward the boulder-frosted ridgeline of Rock Mountain. The increasingly sketchy, steeply inclined path eventually peters out among the rocks of the mountain’s west shoulder, where a short boulder-hopping traverse eastward gets you to the highest point, 1108 feet above sea level. There, the views of the surrounding landscape are unobstructed and panoramic."
