Weather permitting, we will park at the crossroads of Nacimiento-Fergusson road and Coast Ridge Road. From there we will hike the road five miles to the trailhead of Cone Peak. Another couple of miles to the summit. Set up camp there and enjoy the sunset over the Pacific. In the morning we will catch the sunrise over the Central Valley. It will be cold so pack accordingly . Usual backpack equipment. Warm bag and tent . Four liters of water and food for dinner and breakfast. Seasoned backpackers welcome . I’ve never done it outside of summer so I’m preparing for under 20degrees at night .
