Ascent Trip Report

Please see below link with Pictures and GPS Route of my Hike

Not really sure what is the Status on this Mountain, Legal or Not??, The fact remained that the Road was closed and I had to find a hole in the fence to get in. Got one near a wash to crawl under up followed the Wash for quiet a bit to reach the road which is easy to follow. Missed the right hand side Turnoff on my way up even though it is clearly marked by a fence post. Not a bad Hike in general but as I said I am not sure if this Mountain is open for public access.

Happy Hiking, Josef
