Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Jane Gibbons up Gold Creek Trail /Road to Yerba Buena Trail at saddle by water tank. Trail deteriorates by peak and is overgrown by Buckthorn and Poodle Dog.

Tons of Bush Poppies, Spanish Broom and Poodle Dog. Also Indian Paintbrush, Night Shade and several others.

Clear and great views from summit. Old register gone. There is a new one recently placed by Jorge Estrada.

Started early to beat heat. On summit at 10:05 am. Glad to be out by mid day - 83 degrees at car.

Saw no hikers. Passed one guy on motorcycle on his way in when we were almost back to cars.
