Ascent Trip Report

Our intent was to loop the lookout by stating at Diablo and then descending the eastern ridge to ROss lake. We would then return via Ross Lake Dam etc. The ridge line was gorgeous but the trail does not match many mapping sources. My partner was uncomfortable with continuing downward without knowing that we'd have water (the maps show trail following Riprap Creek but in reality it overshoots this creek on ridge). Examining the most recent Greentrails map shows the trial in it's extant location. It does not appear to follow Riprap Creek so I cannot speak to whether there is water along the trail or not. Sourdough creek however has good water. There is also good water along the ridge.
