Ascent Trip Report

I reached The Cobble after returning from Yokum's Seat to the HMC trailhead. This parking area is off West Mountain Road at a gated road out alongside the #144 & #152 common driveway. At the near trail start (across from one home's backyard) an easily crossed stream just below its deeply slotted rise up flanking road / trail cannot afterward easily be crossed (I stepped across this ford to start and tried a fresh downed oak bridge coming back); with the northeast ridgeline reached the bushwack to summit is a quite simple rise.
