Ascent Trip Report

Used the off street parking along Woodbridge Street. I parked and took the main trail that splits the peak with the radio station from the main south hills peak. I missed the more popular route up the spine as the entrance trail was under water from the rains and muddy but found a nice contour trail that is not used often that slipped right up to this nice urban peak with nice views. Green grassy fields well hydrated by record rains and that unique green slick rock that makes up the formations. From the top I spotted another nice peak along the ridge that is not entered in the database. As I approached it I saw it had nearly 200 feet of prominence and more solitude than this peak which was crawling with people and dogs so I hiked down to check it out next see TR for the following peak. I did hike back over this small peak on the way back.
