Ascent Trip Report

Wanted to get a workout on this one, so I parked at Uvas Canyon County Park (a bit weird driving through the private Sveadal grounds). Headed up the Knibbs Knob trail, which was very steep for an old road. Followed Dinesh Desai's excellent directions here ( 12.5 miles, 3000' of gain, 3 hours 47 minutes.

Socked in at summit, no views. Heard dogs barking, but encountered none on my walk to the summit. 9 or 10 cars passed me, either ignoring or waving to me.
