Ascent Trip Report

A road walk and bushwack from Grizzly Peak Road ..... .5 mile, 30 minutes RT.

From the Tilden Regional Park South Entrance, at Grizzly Peak Road and S Park Road (TH for Chaparral Peak), we drove west on Grizzly Peak Road .5 miles to the TH parking on the right, at a Transmission Tower and a University of California sign post #15.

An old/little-used paved road leads west about 400 yards to the summit with a fenced-in Communication Tower. At 60 yards I had to go around the locked American Tower gate.
The road arrives at the west side of the fenced-in Tower and the HP in on its east side. The outside of the fence has very dense vegetation and too difficult to go through, so I walked back 40 yards on the road and bushwacked east below the fence to the HP.

"IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED ..... SKY DIVING IS NOT FOR YOU."
