Shelly and I set out first for Peak 862 from the parking area at the end of Avenida Talega. After reaching the top she spied two nearby summits so we hiked over to each of them as well, thus climbing Peak 862 3X in the process. We then went back on the Christianitos South trail and up the North trail which is a popular skateboard run as evidenced by all the wheel marks on the pavement. Switching to dirt near the water tanks we went up to San Clemente Summit on the Talega trail. Nice bench and mailbox with the register, saw that Terry et al had just been there the day before! Found all 3 benchmarks on the summit. Continued on and then made the significant breach of a fortified and signed gate into county dump property. Made it to Peak 1120 and explored the tower area briefly, finding a single benchmark on the north fence line. Next was another breach, this time into Rancho Viejo property to get to Viejo Viewpoint. Be aware there are cameras at the gate near the water trough, and right at the summit itself next to the new building. Spent our lunch break here. Retraced our route and made it back in bounds without any incident probably since no one was around on a sunday. Overall a nice long easy hike on good double track with great views and cool breezes to accompany us throughout the day.
