Ascent Trip Report

This is a private mountain the best I can tell but the large subdivision resident have access to it through a private park. It says only for residents and their guests. My son bought a lot in the platted area and we have a friend that lives in the area that allowed us to be their guest and use the facility. Wonderful. I hate trespassing. I passed some friendly ladies on the way up. There is a maintenance road that shows on the USGS map much of the way up and some nice trails with signs easy to find all the way to the summit from this location. I read reports of people finding lots and trespassing their way up. I have no advice other than to say there are a lot of people that live in the area so go make a friend and be their guest. Typical spring day...sunny then graupel then drizzle then sun.
