Ascent Trip Report

No benches or tables at the Point shown on map, just a cleared high point about 80' above Cobal Fire Road. Summit is accessed by an overgrown, steep but obvious use trail on the north facing slope. Nice views of the Cobal Cyn Mtwy and Fire Road, and Claremont. Such a popular trail that the main $3 fee parking lot was full at 8am (Sunday), and the overflow $3 fee lot near Mills Ave and Mt Baldy Rd was also near full. Busy like trails in Griffith Park.
