|Date:||Sunday, October 23, 2016|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||2694 ft / 821 m|
Ascent Trip ReportUpon finding the trailhead, I was surprised to find it "closed until made safe for entry." After some investigative work I discovered this was due to the recent fire near Loma Prieta. Knowing the fire was no longer active, I snuck by the fence and started the trek up, if I found the trail to be dangerous I vowed not to push on.
Turns out they blazed a firebreak right through the high point of (K?)nibbs Knob and it crosses the trail a few times to the east. It's still a bit messy in places. Although the trail was safe for hiking by my judgement, I definitely underestimated the relentless incline.
Took me a little over an hour going up and about 20 minutes to make it back down, slowing my jog to sneak past the campgrounds and avoid being seen at the trailhead.
