|Other People:||Solo Ascent|
|Date:||Friday, April 17, 2020|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||Cache Creek Ridge|
| Elevation:||2192 ft / 668 m|
Ascent Trip ReportTook the Lynch Canyon trail to the Roadkill Cafe, which was unfortunately closed. No 'Chunk of Skunk' today. Went west up the Cache Creek Ridge Spur to the Cache Creek Ridge trail, and returned to the Roadkill via the Brophy Cyn trail. Met two groups of two equestrians and saw a parked mountain bike with rifle holster left near the summit. Apparently it's turkey season. The register was soaked but was able to dry it out a bit. I first hiked the Ridge trail in 1996, starting from the east side, but one bump shy of the summit I dropped down to the creek and used an inflatable kayak for the return trip. Got the peak now.
