Ascent Trip Report

Attempted to park at Wildwood Picnic Area, but got there before the gates were opened, so parked on highway turnout near gate. Trail was easy to follow, but overgrown in some areas. Trail had a constant elevation gain throughout, so no chance to give the legs some rest with any flat sections. Views from summit were great of the LA Basin and the San Gabriel Mountains. Could not find register. Returned down same route.
