Ascent Trip ReportI'd checked this out on Google Maps and it seemed a fairly simple near-drive-up, but approaching the spot on Burnside Road I began to wonder. All the houses along the road, and there are many, were fenced and gated, and there were quite a few vineyards with 6 foot, into-the-ground- deer fences to protect the grapes. At the summit, then, I was surprised to see a simple pullout, no fence, and an easy 5 minute walk up to a large flat meadow. There are houses nearby but the top is an empty lot. The views were surprising for such a nondescript highpoint, clear across Santa Rosa to Sonoma Mountains and all the way out to the coast and south.
