Ascent Trip Report

Uvas Canyon Park was closed by the rains of 2017; the road washed out. This park is heavily used and reservations must be made on weekends. ON this delightful Sunny Wednesday, we took a bit of exercise and climbed this peak. We parked in the upper parking lot. The trail is all road and the summit is forested with Douglas Fir and Pine trees.

On the way up, we saw Blue-eyed grass, Golden Yarrow, Tidy Tips and Goldfields in a wonderful meadow of California Poppy. A worthwhile hike.
