Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the TH parking pull off along Ruby Road and headed up the Atascosa Tr., departing the vehicle at 11:22am. Overall distance to the summit was 2.6 miles one way with a net gain of about 1,549 feet. The trek up was slow paced and took me just under two hours. Spent about an hour on the summit enjoying the solitude, fantastic views and snapping some photos, until a couple of hikers made the base of the final approach. Deciding to pass the solitude off, I departed around 2:10pm taking the same route as the way up. I passed a second pair of hikers coming up about 1/4 mile from the summit. Overall descent took about an hour and hit the road straight away to explore some other areas westward towards Ruby.
