Ascent Trip ReportWe drove up to the observatory parking lot and on the way to see the Hale Telescope, stopped in at the visitor centre. We had hoped to walk from the observatory to the summit of Palomar Mtn., but this was not possible. There were locked gates and signs indicating no entry along the road that traverses from the observatory to just below the summit.
