Ascent Trip Report

***Private Outing***

Maya threw up 8 times last night, and wouldn't eat her breakfast this morning so we decided to give her a break today; leaving her at home, we headed off into "No Dogs Allowed" country.

We started from the parking lot at Trippet Ranch and headed up the Eagle Springs Fire road to the Eagle Junction. At Eagle Junction we headed up the northern of the two roads that split at the Junction and rejoin at The Hub; this northern road took us to Eagle Rock. We hit the high point up there and then walked over to the sandstone friction slab (not the high point) that gives this little peak its name. Nice views up there and then we continue on to The Hub, where we headed SE along the Temescal Ridge Trail, then east along the Backbone Trail to the summit of Temescal. Nice views on Temescal too! Coming back we hit The Hub, then took the southern road to Eagle Junction. At Eagle Junction we hopped onto the Musch Trail for the return to the parking area.

Nice day out there; plenty of people out riding their bikes, hiking, enjoying the day. Mileage and gain for full loop hike; time up is total to the summit of Temescal, time down is from Temescal to the car.
