Peak Name: Mother Miguel Mountain
Distance: 3.75 miles
Date: June 17, 2017
Summit: 1,520 feet
With the temperatures predicted to high everywhere except near the coast, I decided this was the perfect time to drive down and summit Mother Miguel. The ascent began under a blanket of fog. It was thick enough that I had to assist a runner coming down the trail with some directions.
The trail quickly snakes its way up the mountain, and soon the fog burned off revealing a lovely view of the South Bay,
Once the switchbacks end, the trail turns northward toward the summit.
The summit is adorned with a POW/MIA flag in addition to the Stars and Stripes. The return down the mountain was uneventful.
