Ascent Trip Report

I came in from the north from Zeile Creek Road. I started south then turned on a smaller trail back north on the other side of Zeile Creek. I then took the Garin Woods Trail up and up. At the top there is a small pond and I went passed it curving to the left. As I went up Garin Peak, I sort of went over Vista Peak, according to the PK placement. Vista Peak really makes no sense. The hill to the west, about a hundred yards, is much more of a "peak".
There is a benchmark on Garin Peak.
