Ascent Trip Report

Left from 4wd Trailhead at 10,600 feet, large open area. Hucked a steep ridge to about 10,800, jumped on an old trail (not sure what kind) and headed West for a while. The trail had a switch back at about 11,100 that took is in a more parallel direction as the road. Eventually made my way up to road, walked past gate, bagged Almagre South, made my way down to the reservoir and across to the road heading up Almagre. Bagged Almagre and came back the same way.
