Ascent Trip Report

The toughest part is finding the trail above the county park. As noted in other TRs, the gate to the park opens at 9:30 am (too late to be useful) and closes at sunset. Pay to park. We started before it opened, so we parked near the diner. Find the trail just above the sandlot baseball field. You are on the right trail if you see a sign for entering the nature preserve or something like that. The use trail cuts off the main trail very close to the houses to the south of the peak. I guess you could park in that neighborhood, but we thought we were in nature until we saw the sprawl to the south. Better route our way I believe! Summit register was mostly crap, so we didn't even sign it. The highest rock is an easy scramble, so we all took turns climbing up it for pics.
