Skyline Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Although dogs must be on leash in this park, this hike remains one of the most enjoyable and easy jaunts in Monterey. On a clear day, the views are unbeatable, and as far as pooch is concerned, leash or no leash, a pine forest is a cafeteria of smells no dog wants to miss."

"Jacks Peak County Park sits on a wooded ridge that separates the Monterey Peninsula from Carmel Valley. The 525-acre ridgetop preserve has 1 1 interconnecting hiking and equestrian trails that cover over 8.5 miles.The Skyline Trail, a self-guided nature trail set amid native Monterey pines, traverses Jacks Peak to its 1 ,068-foot sum- mit. Jacks Peak is the highest point on the Monterey Peninsula. The Skyline Trail offers some of the best views of the peninsula. From the peak are picturesque bird’s-eye views of Carmel Valley, the Santa Lucia Mountains, Carmel, Point Lobos, the Monterey Peninsula, and the Pacific. Interpretive pamphlets highlight the geology, forest ecology, plants, and birds."
