Ascent Trip Report

My last summit of the day. A large park with a summit visible for many miles. unlike the other summits this has a wooded summit and so limited views. Despite that, it is a very popular hike with a long of use and I shared the journey with at least 30 people. Easy place to grab an UBER. My favorite public summit nearby was the one to the east - Corona Heights Crag.
