Ascent Trip Report

Entered the residential community, drove deeper until I found the trail accessing the small park behind the houses. Jogged around, there were a few possible high points. Realistically, this probably isn’t native/virgin soil and has likely been pushed around by excavating equipment making points higher or lower than natural.

Noticed a burrow in the side of the hill, and while walking closer to investigate, I saw a tortoise a little smaller than a shoe box hustle into the hole. Too dark to make out for sure but I think there were 2 tortoises in there.

Jogged a little over a mile making sure to tag all the hilltops I could found. Topped out at 27 feet on my app. 26.078211, -80.272812

Back on the trail there are informative signs about the wild life and Natives who used to live in the area.
