Ascent Trip Report

Gate was unlocked when I arrived but locked on return. No negative signage and no indication I was entering a wildlife area. The official parking lot on Loma Rica is a short distance east but it would have involved more flat walking.

Poison oak is returning with a vengeance after the recent fire. I became quite proficient at identifying and, hopefully, avoiding its bare brown stalks by the time the day was over! Saw more cattle than wildlife.
