McNee Ranch State Park

No camping here. The goal here is to go up Montara Mountain, look at the great view, then head back down. Repeat as needed. (The hike is strenuous, but well worth it for the view of, well, fog. Very nice fog. Plan on four or five hours for the round trip.).

Bring all the water you need - there is none available. You might want to bring a light jacket too.

Open from dawn to dusk.


Mountain Biking
Dogs Allowed

Getting There

McNee ranch is on Highway 1, just north of Montara. Park in a small lot just south of the ranch, on the west side of the highway. If you can't park there, park at Montara State Beach just a little distance to the south.
