Ascent Trip Report

Family hike with Wifey, Alyssa, Jojo and Brooke. Started and finished via Hilltop Park Trailhead and Nighthawk Trail to summit. Even pulling and prodding the girls along Linda and I kept 28 mph splits for the 4.7 mile loop. Number 2 completed on my SC 100 Peaks in San Diego Peak and doing this with family is just how I dreamed it.
