Ascent Trip Report

Drakes Point is the high point of Vacaville's Browns Valley Open Space. There's a number of bouldering spots half way up the hill that are popular with local climbers. I parked on Woodcrest Drive and headed in the wrong direction before turning and going up across an open field torn up by cattle. Better would have been to go to the left to where a worn trail leads to the summit.

Since the park is high on the edge of the Sacramento Valley you get a good view of the Sierras on a clear day
