Ascent Trip Report

Brushy Peak is just about the closest public hiking area to my house (25 min drive), I hadn't been here in a years, but not much has changed. This would be unbearably hot (no shade) in summer, but is a nice fall hike. The summit is behind a barbed wire fence, although use trails lead to the fence and the bottom rung of barbed wire was cut so crossing was easy. Nice loop hike, with options to extend a bit if desired. As is, a nice exercise peak for me for when I want a short hike but don't want to drive too far. 5 miles, about 1300 ft of gain.
