Ascent Trip Report

Started in Los Cruceros and worked our way over to eagle pines and down all the way to the base of Peak 1940. The eagle pines trail actually improves and gets much better after going around Eagle Pines (opposite of what we expected) and though it crosses private property, the trail is easy to follow all the way to bear mountain road.
