Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Camino San Rafael/Flintridge Drive intersection. Stepped over the closed Gate #4 and up to the Ridge Motorway. Followed a use trail up from the motorway from the west side to the enclosed/fenced area. Proceeded clockwise around the fenced area to the LA County benchmark stamped 1943 next to a bench/seat. Really nice views! Returned the same way by continuing around the fenced area, below the lookout tower, and back down the motorway.
