Ascent Trip Report

From Umunhum summit parking, walk down to the saddle. You will see the gate with endless-long fences extending to both ends (hint: I did not climb over it). The roads merge and split at places. The dirt road over the ridge is more pleasant than the paved road around the contour.
You will see lots of "No Trespassing" or "Authorized Vehicles Only" signs. Fortunately, I did not enter any "No Trespassing" zone.

Climbed Mt. Umunhum before getting back to car.
