Ascent Trip Report

Fire road walk to a horrible summit. No views and power lines. Why this peak is on some of these major Bay Area Lists is a head scratcher.

If you are looking for a hike or run where you can just put your head down and go, this is it. Great stats for training and not gonna miss much by moving fast. Least amount of pictures I’ve ever taken on hike!

Took LimeKiln to the junction, went left up Priest Rock Trail to Kennedy Trail to the summit and followed the lower LimeKiln Trail back to the junction and then out.

Went onto St. Joseph’s Hill next.
