Ascent Trip Report

Probably the most disappointing hike/Summit of the stay. Public park is large but a bit and under repair. Summit with many trees and little views and fairly crowded. After the far more interesting crags and hills with wide open views of the Pacific, SF Bay, and downtown, this was an anti-climatic bagging. It was hiked as part of a long linear transect through the city and the route is on the GPS track below.
