Ascent Trip Report

Parked at trailhead for Cahuilla and walked up dirt road to Little Cahuilla trailhead. I thought the road past Cahuilla trailhead would have required a 4x4 due to recent rains, but the road just had a few rough spots I walked past on the way.

Hiked up the trail, which was well ducked and clipped. The trail was bushy, with many of the shrubs brushing against me as I hiked past them. There were a few bumps to go up and over along the way to the summit. The final ascent to the peak (from the last saddle) was steep and extremely bushy. Found the register in the rock pile at the top (there were two register cans). Signed the register and enjoyed the views. Descended along the same route.
