MB16 - The Dare List
All Photography by Thinkstockphotos.com

Dare 1

Trek the sandy-dune terrain of the first five holes on Spyglass Hill Golf Course, a Robert Trent Jones Sr. course, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.

Dare 2

Follow the sounds of the bagpipes, which start at sunset at The Inn at Spanish Bay. They belong to that bagpiper. It's all part of honoring a Scottish tradition.

Dare 3

Cast your rod and reel during a deepsea fishing excursion on the 65-foot Star of Monterey with Chris' Fishing Trips.

Dare 4

Drop the equivalent of five stories on The Corkscrew at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The 2.2-mile course is open to daredevils. Skip Barber Racing School lets you put the pedal to the metal in a one-day intro class.

Dare 5

Shore dive for a firsthand look at towering kelp forests, one of the world's great coldwater diving attractions.

Dare 6

Pull a late-nighter by booking a 1 a.m. soak in the natural hot springs mineral baths at Esalen. It's the only time the cliff side Big Sur tubs are open to the public.

Dare 7

Compete with the locals in Tuesday trivia night at Monterey's London Bridge Pub — and scarf on the delicious beer-battered fish 'n' chips.

Dare 8

Stick your hand into a hive and harvest honey right from the bees.

Dare 9

Climb aboard a farmer's tractor with Cowboy Pete, a 70-something-year-old with a 10-gallon hat, boots, and a rodeo trophy buckle, to tour Carmel Valley tasting rooms.
831-970-8198


Dare 10

Work your glutes while hunting wildflowers in the springtime on the Junipero Serra Peak in Los Padres National Forest. Flower colors are mind-bending, as is the 12-mile, relentless climb up the Santa Lucia Trail.

Dare 11

Hike 10 miles to Big Sur's off-the-beaten-path hot springs, Sykes. Despite the remoteness, expect crowds.

Dare 12

Ascend the 185 steps of Monterey; then, descend; then, do like a soldier and repeat. The hike starts in Quarry Park, near Veterans Memorial Park.

Dare 13

Learn the ropes at Pinnacles National Park, the Cadillac of rock climbing, where you can sign up for a weekend climbing camp with Adventure Out (all gear included).
