Ascent Trip Report

Drove to the TH 16+ miles on Milpitas Rd from its Mission Rd junction. The Santa Lucia Trail starts as an old jeep road, then undulates through the first two miles before starting the switchbacks to the top. The fairly level summit area has two contending HPs, the eastern one supposedly the true summit. The long abandoned Lucia fire lookout remains.
