Ascent Trip Report

I found the use trail past the peak off Little Sycamore Trail. The benchmark says, "Shady #1." There are a couple of little markers as well. I got off the use trail and emerged on Serrano Ridge. An Irvine police officer happened to be driving by at the same time. He asked me what I was doing off the trail--using the restroom was my response. He explained the dangers of being in the bushes--snakes, ticks, alligators, etc., and I listened, hoping he would leave, but he didn't; he just kept lecturing me. Finally, he left, but waited to make sure I stayed on the main trails. It always seems to be really warm there, despite being fairly close to the beach.
