Ascent Trip Report

Turned north on Mantonya from SR 62, drove north to Siesta Drive, turned left, drove up about a half mile and parked there. It was such a beautiful day, I wanted to hike, not drive. Had the road to myself. Great views from the top. Round trip distance includes side trip to High Benchmark. The earlier reports are correct, most 4WD vehicles would have no issues driving to the top. But I wanted to hike. Perfect weather - mid-60s.
