Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the only public lot I could find that would allow for earning the hike. I parked at the Hallinan Elementary School parking lot and was not the only person with the idea of hiking up the steep hill for exercise. Another young man did the same and parked and hiked up near me.

The temperature was hotter today than yesterday at 102F and they are predicting a record 109F tomorrow at 5 PM holy crap. This is Portland Oregon too! I walked down the street and found the 280 contour then headed up Cherry Lane to Upper Cherry Lane to Bergis Road to Crestline Dr.

Peak is on developed residential lot just beyond the public R/W.
