|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|

Ascent Trip ReportFollowed a previous trip report, parking at the Oak Grove fire station and taking a well-signed trail up to meet Oak Grove Road. Took 5.5 hours roundtrip with little stopping, maybe 10-12 miles? It would be possible to add another 3 miles to hike over to Palomar Observatory along a fire road. The Observatory gives tours and is nestled in a lovely spot: http://www.astro.caltech.edu/palomar/
