Ascent Trip Report

A long-time, favorite short hike on paved access road close to home. Provides great views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Mt. Tam, the Delta, Mt. Diablo, and much of Contra Costa County. However, the flattened summit area, topped by communications equipment, is uninspiring, to say the least.
