Ascent Trip Report

Great hike with great weather. Warmer than the norm for a February day, but no complaints about the beautiful clear day with good views all the way to the city. Trail is rugged much of the way and I had to use my hands to scramble up some rocky sections, but probably those with stronger legs could stay on two feet (I am in my 70s so highly recommend hiking poles). Some of this area burned in 2018, so you will see scorched manzanita, etc. but right now the new vegetation is brilliant green. And the fire made it possible to have views from the peak (as well as from nearby Gunsight Rock).
