Ascent Trip Report

Fire road the entire way. Saw several cyclists struggling on the climb. Walked a good portion up and down. Most of the up is in the first 4 miles. Then some gentle up and down (net up). Was hot and dry (summer). The top is slightly to the north of the Woods trail but there is an offshoot (not on the maps) to the actual summit which is right under the powre lines. The top was very unspectacular.
