Ascent Trip Report

Nice, quiet trail tucked away in a fancy golf club neighborhood. A few cows, some mud but not too bad. The trailhead is almost invisible if you aren't looking for it. I wonder how many locals realize this is here.

The summit made me wish I'd packed a picnic. Flat, grassy, interesting rock outcrops, and trees that provide shade and seclusion without obscuring the view. Someone even hauled some chairs up here, but they'd been ruined by the rain.
