Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I started at Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park, which is located south of the 101 Freeway where Reseda Blvd ends. The free parking spaces were full, so we paid $5.00 to park. Also, the park district sent Kelley a ticket because they had a photo of her rolling through a random stop sign in the middle of an almost empty parking lot! We hiked up the dirt road to a road junction, then took the Temescal Ridge trail to the HUB junction, where 4 roads meet and there is an outhouse. Next, we followed the road south past Cathedral Rock to the Backbone Trail, which we took for a short distance, then followed the use trail to the top.
