“Nice views”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The trails are easy to moderate and offer some nice views of Monterey Bay and Carmel Valley. There is a small fee to get in so bring a few one dollar bills. It's on the honor system.

“What a view!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This is a great place to visit. Just a short hike up the trail and you get a panoramic view of Monterey Bay. Well worth the effort!

“A Hike and a Picnic”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

Jacks Peak Park is just down the road from the home of a family member. I have enjoyed many a hike here at all times of year when I have been out there visiting. Truly lovely with unbelievable views of the ocean from way up high! Make time for an afternoon here, you will be glad you did!

“Great hikes and views”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Lot's of different trails to try with varied terrain. There are picnic areas and benches to take rests on and the whole park feels pretty safe. Grab a map on the way in if your new, many of the trails connect and its easy to miss the signage. We ended up going in a big circle, but it wasn't a big deal, still a great hike.
