Ascent Trip Report

DPS route via Cottonwood Wash is NOT a trespass!

As best I could, I traced the boundary of the Cal State Preserve that is restricted, and made it into a gpx track, and added a waypoint for the trailhead. It matches exactly with the locked gate and posted fence just south of the parking area. That's why there are no signs along the route.
