Ascent Trip Report

My plan was to leave the Lichen Bark TH at Lake Del Valle and hike the Ohlone Wilderness Tr to Rose Flat and make my second visit to "Discovery Peak," the Alameda CoHP--designated as Volpe Ridge-Rose Flat on Then, after a brief stop at Discovery Peak, I would continue on the Rose Flat Road, hoping to hike it unchallenged through private property to reconnect with the Ohlone Wilderness Tr to Rose Peak. No problem getting to Discovery Peak However, almost as soon as I had left Discovery Peak and returned to the Rose Flat Rd, the proverbial barking dog appeared behind a fence and an unsympathetic property owner turned me away. So much for Rose Peak today. I returned to the Ohlone Trail and took Greenside Rd, passing Stewart's backpack camp and popular Murietta Falls, to rejoin the Ohlone Wilderness Tr for my return to the Lichen Bark TH.
