Ascent Trip Report

Original plan was to summit Monument Peak, but getting to the trail head late and the county locking the gate promptly at sundown (4:50p), I had to abandon this plan (the hike was also longer than I thought), as I would have been very bummed having my car locked in.

Gossip Rock was a nice, albeit very short hike. Nice views of the south bay. Even on a dreary day, I saw probably a dozen other folks on the trail.
