Ascent Trip Report

A short dirt road walk up ..... 600 yards, 25 minutes RT.

From I24, exit 7A we drove north on Fish Ranch Road to a right on Grizzly Peak Road, then continued north to the Tilden Regional Park South Entrance at corner of Grizzly Peak Road and South Park Drive .... northwest side of the summit, at University of California sign post #18. This was my TH.

I walked the dirt track southeast 300 yards to the open summit and the Witness Post Survey Marker, my GPS 37.87846,-122.22366 ..... an Ecological study area, horizontal tank, 3 large stumps, evidence of wood working with a lot of wood chips. A foggy day, no views.
