Ascent Trip ReportBeautiful warmer-than-average day made for a great hike. I had been warned that the access road was 4WD only, but I made it up in my Chevy Cruze just fine. The trail is obvious and well-graded all the way up. Views from the top were outstanding. I was not alone; probably because of the fine weather several other people visited the top of the mountain just before and after me. Because this is a nature preserve and the home of some rare plants and animals I was a bit surprised at the public access. Overall, a fairly easy hike and a beautiful summit.
