Ascent Trip Report

Parked in the dirt parking lot just inside the entrance to the park. Followed the white blazed trail to Castle Craig, and climbed up on the rocks where the lighting for the flagpole is mounted. Once I had finished with that, I followed the road across to the main peak. Just before getting to the parking lot for the antennas, there is a road that goes off to the right. Follow that road, until you see a blue blazed trail that leads between the antennas. The high point (according to my GPS) is just off this trail.
