Ascent Trip Report

The Tiguan made it all the way to the gate, but any less ground clearance and we would've had to stop earlier. The actual trail doesn't line up with either Caltopo or Global topo maps, so be aware of that. It's an easy road walk to the trail intersection, and then a smaller trail after that. At the intersection,we assumed it was a loop, but the trail to the north fades quickly, and we turned around and went the other way. The other trail goes right to Bacon ledge. Good views from the top here, but very windy still. On to Round mountain.
