Ascent Trip Report

Trailhead is at the South Clevenger Trailhead on Highway 78. The trail is marked as the South Clevenger Trail. The trail itself is well-used and somewhat worn. There are spots where spots where the erosion is knee-deep. There is evidence of neglect, given that the trail signs are shredded down to threads of fiberglass. Trail is part of the San Dieguito River System. Good news is that it's a nifty little trail with very little in the way of up-and-down. There is no scrambling, except for the summit block itself. No bushwhacking, although the trail narrows near Peak 1755.

There are four peaks or waypoints in this vicinity. There is a trail junction. A right turn leads to Peak 1540, which I hiked on 2/26/2021. If you turn left, the South Clevenger Canyon Trail leads to Peak 1755, The Chairs, and Peak 1635. These three peaks are referenced in this report.

Peak 1755 is actually the high point of this trail, but represents only a short jog off the main trail. The Chairs is a lookout point where someone has installed some concrete slabs. A rope ladder leads to a cement platform in which are mounted a pair of chairs. The Chairs also abut a private home and there are No Trespassing Signs. Last, Peak 1635 does involve a downward slope that must be climbed out of. The trail is not steep.

Views from this point include Cuyamaca Peak, Mt. Woodson, and the San Pasqual Valley.
