Ascent Trip ReportWe parked in Lot 6 on the University of Riverside Campus and walked up S. Campus Drive until we reached a narrow paved road just beyond Lot 43 and across from the Insectary and Quarantine Facility. From there we walked east up the road, passed a greenhouse and reservoir, and then ascended to a saddle just below Versity Benchmark. At this point we left the paved road and followed a well defined dirt road to the twin boulders on the summit of Coyote Hill.
