Ascent Trip Report

Pulled into a dirt parking lot signed "Golden Valley Ranch Open Space" and proceeded past a locked gate up the Nadeau Motorway. Ground was muddy in places with sticky clay from yesterday's rains. Merged with the Placerita Motorway and eventually gained a saddle where a use trail lead to the summit. Very breezy/windy. Nice view. No register, but located the benchmark which did not indicate "Horse". Several mountain bikers out and about. Returned the same way.
