Ascent Trip Report

Wolfgang, Sugar, and I parked at the first trail down Yellow Hill Road which on the Cal Topo map is labeled at Woodcuck Trail. We hiked down a nice grassy path/road to the East Line Trail. We then went south on the East Line Trail which is a rocky old fire road to Tower Road. It was a short walk up Tower Road to the top of Copicut Hill. There is a fence around the fire tower that has a nice hole cut in it. We went in and climbed the tower to take some good pictures. We also found the BM inside the fenced in area just north of the fire tower. After some snacks and drinks we took Tower road back to Yellow Hill road which we took back to our car.
This area is all fire roads and is a very nice area to hike in with lots of wildlife. We should a rafter of wild turkeys and a beautiful fawn.
