Peak Name: Mount Israel
Distance: 3.6 miles
Date: May 6, 2017
Summit: 1,346 feet
On a semi-rainy afternoon, I, along with a few friends decided to head out to Elfin Forest and hike up to Mount Israel. Parking in the main lot for the reserve, we crossed over the stream and began climbing up the Way Up Trail.
Once we reach the overlook to the Olivenhain reservoir, we continued on west to the summit. The rains held off, but the cloudy mists still made for a damp, but refreshing hike.
We headed back down the trail to the car, dried off and headed home. Only later did I learn I missed the turn to the actual summit.
