Ascent Trip Report

Got this one coming down from Hamilton Mountain. Instead of taking the trail to the left back down to the lower parking lot, we took the one going to the right which goes to the upper parking lot. Once on the trail, Look for a small trail heading off to the right which takes you to the base of the peak. The trail is super easy to follow. You will come to a semi-open area with a set of 3 rock pillars right in front of you. That is not the true summit. Off to your right at the end of the trail is a small climbers trail heading up a hill. This is the trail to the true summit. Watch out for poison oak as it is on the sides of the trail but its easy to avoid. Great view of the George and Beacon Rock. Nice hike to come do after Beacon Rock if you need a bit more exercise!
