Ascent Trip ReportThis was a fun hike with an awesome view from the summit. That said, the spiky grass and rough/thorny bushes meant that those wearing boots and long pants were able to most enjoy it. The ridge has numerous step-ups, and thus there were many false summits. The road was remarkably well maintained and can easily be driven by a standard passenger car.
We did find a nice surprise- really good petroglyphs at the base of the mountain.
