Selected Hikes

Fall and early winter is a great time to hike or backpack in the Ventana Wilderness!

The foggy season is over and the rainy season hasn't begun in earnest. I've collected some Ventana trips here -- not all from the fall, but any of these hikes would be great at this time of year.

I took a five day backpack along the Ventana coast ridge southeast towards Cone Peak. Being on ridgetop, the views were great up and down the coast as well as inland.
