Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***
Drove up Chihuahua Valley Road past unlocked gate to PCT trailhead for a nice little 1.9 mile stroll along trail and then up a 0.3 mile (600' gain), very well defined use trail to summit. Great views up there. Off the mountain and back at the car in a total of 3.0 hours. Stopped at a Vietnamese Buddhist Monastery on our way out (just before the paved Chihuahua Valley Road turns to dirt) to check out the huge statues of Buddha and got invited to join in with their Chinese New Year potluck - Big Fun!!
