Ascent Trip Report

Great morning hike through the San Gabriel foothills. The trail is a little boring at the beginning, but quite fun during the last 1000 feet push to the summit. The views would've been great if the clouds hadn't covered up the entire mountain range. What's cool about this peak it that it's in the center of the San Gabriel range, so from the top it feels like there are endless mountains on all sides.
