This is a beautiful wilderness area with dozens of hiking trails that reach over 3,000 feet in elevation. Needless to say, the park offers unsurpassable views of the San Francisco Bay Area as far away as Yosemite. The park's Summit Museum and Visitor Center features a variety of exhibits and literature on the park and its history. Start by the Juniper Campground on Summit Road. The route links the Deer Flat, Meridian Ridge, and Prospectors Gap roads and North Peak, Summit and Juniper trails.
