Ascent Trip Report

Finally got out to bag Takatori and Kegan after having previously summiting Kyo-Ga-Take. Was unsure of access starting from base of Takatori so decided on hitting KyoGatake again and the remaining two via a ridge walk. The trail to Kegon was a bit rough with steep terrain and fallen trees. After knocking out the 3 peaks, decided I would continue on down due to not wanting to repeat the ups and downs on the way back and also out of curiosity of the trail beyond. It finally let out into a fenced area of a golf course but signage and unlocked gate seemed to allow hikers through so I cut through the course and continued via the road to the originating trail head. 3 hours car to car via this track. Mileage and elevation is for the entire loop.
