Ascent Trip Report

Camped the night prior at Cerro Alto Campground.

Started at the trail head near a 10 MPH speed limit sign between campsites 15 and 16. Crossed a small footbridge and headed up the trail. There were several trail junctions (unsigned) along the way to the summit, so be careful navigating. Reached the summit and did not find a register. There was no view due to the fog. Returned along the same route.
