Ascent Trip Report

Used route data from summitpost to ascend Hidden Valley development roads (Oak and Poplar) to .3 mile long two track to parking lot. Initial forest road from TH goes down slightly and then level for about 10 minutes to first switchback. From that switchback, road coarsens and steepens. Summit has several knife edge rock formations that are fun to climb. This summit is apparently known as Huckleberry Rock. Will have to go for the bushwhack to Big Rock next time.
