Ascent Trip Report

Started at a parking lot that intersects the PCT. Note to all: take the PCT, and not some fire road. I took the fire road, which eventually intersected the PCT, but not before ascending a good 300 feet and then coming back down. On my return trip, I figured I'd follow the PCT which I assumed would lead back to my car. After a mile past the intersection with the fire road, I wasn't seeing road (yes, I hiked without a map) so I turned back around to take the fireroad, which I knew would lead back to the parking lot, albeit with a 300 foot additional ascent. Once I got home, I checked my GPS track and realized I was only 400 feet away from the parking lot along the PCT, and unnecessarily added over 2 miles to my trip.
