Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Nightengale TH and followed sigle track for 1.2 miles until I joined up with the access road to the summit. After another .8 miles, the summit antenae beckoned and I spent 10 minutes looking for bench mark. Nothing was found. Enjoyed views of the 56 and 15... could see Woodson and Iron mountains in the distance, Mission Trails Regional Park to the SW, and the Palomar Range directly to the NE. Beautiful day for a solo hike - great views of the park. Will definitely explore the area further with friends. Wore running shoes. Rocky trail, but nothing too difficult.
