Ascent Trip Report

With Eva, Laure & Alexandre.
Started on the Paradise Dr. side, taking the Phyllis Ellman Trail up until it merged with the Ring Mountain Fire Road. Spent some time watching people climbing Turtle Rock before heading up to the summit which is just beyond a water tank. The trail lower down was quite wet and boggy with some frost in certain places which came as a surprise! The views to San Francisco & Tiburon / Sausalito were excellent as well as the view across to Mt. Tam.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an easy, short hike that wants a good view.
