Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by me, Stella Cheung, Winnette Butler, Chris Spisak, Lilly Fukui

Spent Sunday driving up to get Santa Rosa Mtn, Toro Peak, and Palomar Mtn. Santa Rosa Mtn Road (7S02) was open to the top and in good shape. The Palomar Divide Road was also open to the final gate described in the HPS peak guide, and was in good shape.

The start point for the short hike up to Toro Peak is located at a Y-junction at 7,400' elevation 11.5 miles up 7S02, not the 12.0 miles described in the HPS guide. There is also a Y-junction at 12.0 miles, but it is at an elevation of 8,000'.

Some of us camped out Saturday night at Pinyon Flat Campground, located across SR 74 from the Cactus Springs Trailhead to Sheep/Martinez. Campground was inexpensive, $8 per site, had water, pit toilets, but was pretty littered.
