Ascent Trip Report

Out and back from Green Valley Campground via Airplane ridge. 8 dollars to get into the day use parking area in Green Valley. The ranger at the gate had never heard of Japacha peak and sincerely tried to convince me that I really meant to hike to Cuyamaca or Stonewall peak instead.

Pretty hike with a trail 99% of the way. Elevation gain is very gradual. A minor bit of bushwhack at the end, but there have been enough people through here following the same cairns that the bushwhack is starting to get worn into a trail of sorts.
