Ascent Trip Report

Road walk up to 3 summits ..... 1.6 miles, 1 hour RT for all 3 summits.

We left our San Francisco Hotel and drove northbound on Hwy #101 over the Golden Gate Bridge to the first exit on the right and drove-up to VISTA POINT, got back on #101 northbound to an immediate right onto Alexander Avenue exit, we turned left at the T-JCT and after a short distance a right turn on Conzelman Road and stopped at the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE VISTA POINT.

We continued wb on Conzelman (past a few more vista points) about .75 Mile to a Round-About - parked on the west side of this Round-About at the TH, then hiked north .5 mile to SLACKER HILL.

About 1/2 mile further west on Conzelman is the HAWK HILL TH Parking. The gated road to the top is across the road. I walked the broken pavement road .3 miles northerly to the summit .... remains of defensive fortification on the ridge.

Unfortunately we didn't have the clearest od days, the somewhat foggy weather prevented good views.

"THERE IS NOTHING CLOSER THAN EXCHANGING A BIG WARM HUG."
