Ascent Trip ReportEntered from the Lake Eleanor trail off Forest road 7360. Early on the trail had some very muddy spots that you could loose a boot in if you didn't watch where you stepped. Ascended the East ridge to Scarface with a stop by Point 5862. Some of the best views from the trip are to be had from this point and the approach to it. Getting to Point 5862 was the most scrambly portion of this trip but was not difficult at all. There were lots of blowdowns to navigate over and around but nothing to challenging. We descended the south ridge which started off very nice and easy with a walk through a meadow. We quickly found a well traveled game trail heading down. There was one section on the descent that was scrambly but could possibly be avoided by descending a bit more earlier on the ridge. From the saddle on the south ridge we headed towards Grand Park once again following game trails. At some point we realized the trails were taking us to far East when we wanted to be heading South East to hit Grand Park. After a course correction and some brush pushing we came out into Grand Park where we hit the maintained trail. We took the trail a bit further into Grand Park to see if the views got better, which they did and then headed out.
