Ascent Trip Report

From our park point on Grande Vista Ave. we walked east along the dirt road, referred to as Sierra Vista Ln. on Google Maps, and continued following it as it wound its way up the mountain. After reaching a junction at the main ridge, we headed east for a short distance to the flat summit. Nice walk for those who prefer a wide road with a gradual ascent.
