Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Chorro Grande trailhead off Hwy 33. Clear and sunny on the way up but the clouds beat us to the top. Still had a great view to the north of Lockwood Valley. First mile and a half or so is through old burn area about a year or two old. Gentle climb through the burn area. Finding the trail is a bit confusing at times, but not too bad. Soon after you leave the burn area and pass Oak Camp the trail begins to climb steeper and become more exposed. After reaching the "campsite" below Chorro Spring you start entering tall timber and some shade. Keep climbing until the trail abruptly ends at the road on the ridge. Go right for a mile or so along the road until you reach the parking area with restroom. Continue along the now gated old road until a steep trail starts up the ridge. You'll pass a couple of false summits along the way until Reyes Peak appears across a grassy meadow to the south. Some pics
