Ascent Trip Report

I approached Konocti from the east. I parked at the top of Broadview Drive near the water towers. I hiked past the water towers a little ways until I was near a house with a big barking dog and then hiked up the power line. This route is a little brushy and wearing shorts would be a mistake. There was snow on the ground at the TH and the further up the mountain I went the deeper it became. The snow was never a problem, but it was about 8" deep in shady areas. After climbing about 1500 ft in 1/2 mile I reached the ridge with Buckingham to my right and I could see the fire lookout on top of Konocti to my left. I found the road on top and followed it to Konocti, then back down and up to Howard. I hiked all the way back to Buckingham and admired the large cell phone towers on its high point. It was a nice day with great views. All hiking stats for all 3 peaks are combined on this page.
