Ascent Trip Report

I had looked at this peak for months and scouted various neighborhood streets which border it. Finally yesterday I discovered in the California Protected Lands database that the southeastern half of the hill is the City of Vacaville Alamo Terrace Open Space.

Sure enough Google Street View showed signage at the end of Grandview Drive so I planned a dawn hike. Parking was easy. Paths led up and across a hill to a boundary fence with no other signage. A dozen deer scattered as I approached. From there it was a delightful short walk to the summit as the sun came up.
