El Montanon Trail Professional Review and Guide
"El Montanon is the highest mountain on Santa Cruz Island that is open to the public. Mount Diablo, 12 miles to the west, is 650 feet higher, but is situated solely on Nature Conservancy property and off-limits to hiking for the foreseeable future. No matter; the views from El Montanon are striking, spectacular, and arguably some of the most inspiring in all of Southern California."
--Allen Riedel, 100 Classic Hikes in Southern California (The Mountaineers Books).
