Ascent Trip Report

Drove to the Y parking area above Kelly Canyon Ski Resort. Took gated road to radio towers and then southwest toward ski area. Cut cross country to secondary ridge to the south of the ski area and toward the high point. Cut an ATV track along the ridge to the highpoint area. Rummaged around a bit to find the highest rock in the brush and had lunch. On return, passed a couple of joggers that were enjoying the fall afternoon. Returned to the jeep heading north going cross country west of the radio towers and cut another road back to the parking area. This area has lots of roads/trails that are somewhat confusing, but on closer study, could make it an easy hike.
