Ascent Trip ReportThis was a one way hike. So we parked a car at the end of Avenida De Los Lobos then drove to Glider Port TH at the end of Mountain rd (dirt) just off of Carmel Valley rd
Climbed the trail up to Peak 1376. The trail between 1376 and Black Mtn. is closed but there is a small trail just south that parallels it. Summited Black Mountain then continued on the main road down to the 1st hairpin. Took a connector trail north to Black Mtn Hike Trail, turned right and at the 3rd trail turned left (this trail was also closed). At the bike repair station we continued east on the legal trail up to Little Black Mountain. Doubled back to the Manzanita Loop. Climbed up the middle trail to the small dead-end west side trail and bushwhacked to the summit of Manzanita Loop Highpoint. Continued on the middle trail to the other side of the loop and on to Ebony Benchmark. Found the bench and the dead Italian cypress tree and douglas fir but no Benchmark. Looked for about 15 min. then headed north down to Avenida De Los Lobos and our 2nd car.
