Ascent Trip Report

Parked along Academy Road opposite the "Mesa" gate and just beyond the Elysian Park Adaptive Recreation Center parking lot. Followed a use trail up to a playground/picnic area. Followed a use path adjacent to a road and then along the road to the water tank. The high point seems to be on the west side of the tank at a 2-trunked eucalyptus tree. Interesting view into Dodger Stadium from over the right center field bleachers with Downtown LA looming just beyond. Returned the same way.
