Ascent Trip Report

The blue trail hike up to Park Drive connecting the two Hanging Hills shows signs of grande road and castle construction, with a major pedestrian bridge across Interstate traffic to reach blue trail's start with awesome views to be had at both peaks, and castle to boot. Might not have visited this amazing climb up a gulley of rock, if I'd not found Park Drive closed the night before.
