Peaks View Day Use Area to Chalone Creek Overlook Professional Review and Guide
"This out and back begins and ends with views at either end of a steady cardio climb. The hike begins with the High Peaks silhouetted against the western horizon across seasonal Chalone Creek. The trail follows the creekbed on the east and west banks before the mile-long huff on a mostly exposed slope. A prominent rock outcrop on your left is your unmarked overlook destination above Chalone Creek, looking across the stadium of mountain ranges eastward. If your timing is right, you might even have the privilege of seeing the dry, rocky Chalone Creek’s banks morph into a spring stream of golden California poppies."
