Ascent Trip Report

From Highway 78, I drove up the dirt road about 1.8 miles to The Slot and parked. This road is passable to most vehicles. From the parking area, I followed a well defined use trail to the top of Borrego Mountain, climbing the south summit by mistake along the way. Borrego Mountain did not have a summit register.
