Ascent Trip ReportParked at the end of Oakwood Trail S, the highest road in the big development on the northwest side of the mountain. From there, there is easy access to the ridge top via the tower access road. A local homeowner freely gave me permission to park across from his house, although it appears there is room for a car or two just before the gate at the tower access road. From the end of the tower road, there is a yellow-blazed trail that runs the length of the ridge northeast to the old lookout tower site. It is maybe 1.5 miles each way along the ridge, plus a bit more on the access road. Total hike took me 1:05 at sunset.
