Ascent Trip Report

Parked at 9.7 miles on NF-7S02 (which is the y to the right to Santa Rosa Mountain). Got a little later start due to road construction delays in Anza Valley. Had the mountain to myself. Weather was very warm; upper 70s when I started and upper 80s when I finished. Occasional breeze but primarily atop Toro or Santa Rosa Mountain. Lots of smoke haze from the Lake Fire (near Angelus Oaks). Hiked along the road. Plan is for the Toro trio: Toro Peak - North Summit, Toro Peak, & Toro Peak - West Peak.

I understand this point was chosen as the highest point outside the Santa Rosa Indian Reservation. It is a trivial hike. I could have driven within 60 yards; in fact it is a great turn around location if the first gate is open. I gave an ascent quality a three only due to altitude and where I parked; especially a quick drive ascent from sea-level would add a slight challenge. Otherwise this peak is definite "1".

Stats are included in my Toro Peak trip report.
