Ascent Trip ReportFourth and final peak of the day. Sunrise Hwy/S1 to Big Laguna Trail turnout. There's a parking area at the trailhead for Big Laguna Trail. This was an easy hike to the summit.
Followed Big Laguna Trail. At the junction, I turned left onto National Scenic Trail. After awhile, you'll come to a couple of trail signs. I took the unmarked trail on the right. It's a narrow use trail (still seemed well-traveled) that will lead you to the road. Go around the fenced research trailers and you'll see the road. It will take you to the summit. Found the register can and the benchmark. Awesome to see the way the forest and the desert collide.
