Ascent Trip Report

We started our hike for Double Peak in the Tehachapi Mountain County Park. This park is easy to find, they charge $14 for overnight camping, but there is no fee for Day Use. Drive up into the county park until you see the sign for the trail and park alongside the road.

Hike up the trail until it intersects an old road. Follow the road up to about 7,000 ft elevation where there is a sign and trail that heads directly up the ridge towards the summit of Tehachapi Mtn. This is a nice trail and goes all the way to the summit. After tagging Tehachapi Mtn, we hiked down the trailless southwest ridge of Tehachapi to a saddle about 800 ft below where there we picked up the road that goes up to the summit of Double Mtn. As the name implies there are two summits on Double Mtn. The east one is covered with comm towers and the west one is natural vegetation. I think the west one is a bit higher. Nice views. We had to hike back up over Tehachapi Mtn on the way back.
