Ascent Trip ReportHiked up from Black Rock Canyon Campground via the California Riding and Hiking Trail, Fault Trail and the Eureka Peak Trail. Once I got there I noticed on the trail map that the park provided that Warren Peak is also over 5,000'. I was trying to climb as many of the park's ten 5ers as possible. I was planning on returning via the Burnt Hill Trail so decided to take that to the Black Rock Canyon Trail and then hike up Warren on the same trip. It took me 3 hr 26 min. from the summit of Eureka to the summit of Warren and back to the Back country board at the Campgrounds.
The whole hike was on trails but the trails are very soft sand, my least favorite kind!
