Cone Peak Loop: Hwy 1 to Cone Peak via Vincente Camp (25 miles / 3 days)

This loop in the Ventana Wilderness is not for the faint of heart. Instead, it's beautiful, provides a reasonable amount of solitude, and will push your physical limits. And, while Cone Peak Rd is closed, it's a great way to climb one of the tallest peaks in Coastal California and enjoy some camping along the way.

This route has some great viewpoints of the Pacific Ocean and the Big Sur coastline, and the Santa Lucia Mountains that punctuate the coast. I recommend this route for backpackers ...
