Ascent Trip Report

Can't say enough good things about this peak: spectacular views on all points of the compass, use trail relatively easy to follow, solitude, and practically an undesignated wilderness. Started hike at 0944 hr from Pine Creek Trailhead (Adventure Pass required). Tecate Cypress trees visible from trail on upper reaches and just a few yards off trail. Reached summit at 1055 hr., register boxes flooded with water so I didn't bother signing; ran down and back at trailhead by 1158 hr as I had to be back for obligations. Firebreak (trail) very obvious with large metal gate on left while heading up.
