Ascent Trip ReportInstead of parking beside the access road's posted gate, I parked back at the loop drive just a short distance before the gate. From here my GPS read .57 air miles to the summit. I hiked the road all the way to the communication tower and was surprised to find higher ground behind the tower to the south. There is a rocky area and a great summit rock there. The hiking distance was .9 miles and I did it in 19 minutes. My descent took me 15 minutes, but that included a 5 minute stop in an open shed when there was a sudden heavy rain shower. I felt lucky to have that convenient protection just at the right time and, fortunately, the shower was brief.
