Ascent Trip Report

Hit the trailhead off of Jamul Drive at about 0830, was nice and cool. Took a use trail up that cut out a couple of switchbacks, super steep, but fun. About 2/3 from the summit, trail splits; I took the loop up the hill, and lost the trail, thus turning this easy ascent in shorts into a gauntlet of stabby plants as I found the trail again. My dog, didn't seem to care very much for this part. All in all, fun hike, I wouldn't want to try this in the summer.
