Ascent Trip ReportWe ascended Peak 4695, Collins Benchmark and Knob Benchmark from the west, starting at an unlocked and open gate located along Lost Valley road, which leads to a Boy Scout camp. The trailhead is higher than the peaks and the route involves a lot of ups and downs; also, most of the route was brush free, and some of it followed old firebreaks that apparently were cut during the fire of 2003. The peak register was placed in 1982 and is about 1/2 full. Trip stats and GPS track include ascents of Peak 4695', Collins Benchmark and Knob Benchmark.
