Ascent Trip Report

Tried to make it for sunrise but misjudged the distance. Parked low to get a longer run (right around 3,100'). The gate was open at 6am, so I'm guessing it is rarely closed. The TR's on COHP.org talk of going up the "old road" from the parking area. The old road looks pretty overgrown. I took the summit trail which winds a bit but has a nice steady gentle climb to it. Hit the top just after sunrise. Total round trip was about 5m (45:07).
