Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the Montebello parking lot intending on taking Canyon (west intersection with Page Mill Rd.) to Indian Creek to Montebello Rd. I didn't know it but all of the trails that are visible on google maps are marked with signs. And on the trail there were a lot of paths that aren't on the google map. So I ended up going the wrong way at the start because I followed some of these paths thinking they were the actual trails. I ran about 1mi. total out of the way and got back to the right trail after asking hikers in 2 separate places. I rejoined Canyon and followed my intended route to the top. On the way down there were signs for the parking lot going down Montebello so I took it to Bella Vista back to Canyon (East intersection at Page Mill).
