Ascent Trip ReportTaylor Ridge's claim to fame is that, like Elder Hill,it is a contender for being the prominence HP of San Joaquin County with 480-560' of prominence. From the 17.00-mile marker painted on Mines Rd, continue east on a dirt road for 1.1 miles, then turn uphill past a dwelling and other small buildings. At a saddle/4-way intersection 1.7 miles from Mines Rd, continue straight ahead and then downhill 0.9 mile to a prominent pond and several small houses nearby. I parked by the pond, then started the hike by climbing over the locked gate (No Trespassing sign tacked to it. After a few minutes I came to an old house and corral, turned left and climbed to Taylor Ridge. Follow the ridge road to a locked gate, beyond which is the HP on a small, rocky outcrop near an oak tree. A little farther is a second area with structures/equipment which is probably lower, but which I checked out anyway.
