Ascent Trip ReportThe Sunset Trail is a well graded smooth walk. Where to leave the trail for Manza BM is not marked or if it is I didn't see it. I descended 100-150 yards before I found what turned out to be the use trail. It's quite obvious through the dense brush. It's somewhat less obvious along an old fence line, but easy to follow up a steep slope to the ridge. A really great viewpoint!
I left the Sunset Trail about here. 32d52.208, 116d28.410.
