Ascent Trip Report

Parked at side of paved road a small park. Nice wide trails through the wilderness next to nice homes and it climbs far down the ravine and then switch backs back up the hill and to the park. There is a lot of additional gain this way but you "earn" the HP. The trails take you to "Top of the world" where there were some hikers/bikers looking at the Pacific Ocean from up high. Then I hiked over to the park where the tennis courts pretty much were near the true HP but the grading of the subdivision has disrupted the true high point. I first climbed the reclaimed water slopes up to the backyards of the houses then hiked up to the road where the highest houses are perched. The true HP is gone and I was able to walk up to nearly the front door of the tallest house and the highest ground is now in one the houses living rooms so..........whatever. I was within the 12 inches of the highest spot but it was not natural ground so......this trek I show pretty much gives whatever residual high ground that is left from this perched highpoint above the sea.
