Ascent Trip Report

My wife and I rode our horses up this peak, parking the horse trailer at the entrance to Chip Ross Park. There's a nice spot to tie them up right at the top and a bench a bit below to sit and look out over a grassy area at the countryside. Riding through Chip Ross Park is only allowed during the dry season, which is marked at the entrance -- I believe it's May 15 to Oct 15.
