Ascent Trip Report

Visited this one on a stormy day. Consolation prize due to the weather being too bad to visit Coast Range summits. Driveway to hilltop water tank is across from and just north of Skyline Memorial Gardens. Entrance has large brick columns. Driveway splits left through gate to water tank. Don't block gate or private driveway. The HP on the topo appears to have been cut away for a luxury home and the HP now appears to be somewhere near the tank.

As I was leaving, a Water District Ranger showed up. She was just on routine patrol and said it was OK to walk up to the HP.
