|Date:||Thursday, May 28, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||1717 ft / 523 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom 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.
