Three steep downhills coming from Monument Peak with a beautiful view of the bay.

Description

This is part of Bay Area Ridge Trail project. It extends all the way from Monument Peak to Ed R. Levin County Park.

This is mostly downhill. You'll find a nice but somewhat difficult run with spectacular views of the bay. The trail is in fair condition. It will be nicer when you get close to Ed R. Levin County Park coming from the west. Most of the trail is exposed to the sun without much shade.

Weather permitting, hikers can expect more than wide views of the South Bay Area. This park is popular with paragliders, which makes it a unique backpacking experience.

I saw up to four paragliders at a time one early April afternoon. This park has three launch points along Agua Caliente Trail and Monument Peak Rd.
