Denk Tank Mountain

Peak Name: Denk Tank Mountain
Distance: 2.74 miles
Date: June 4, 2019
Summit: 1,045 feet

Did this peak after work again. Thankfully, I remembered all my gear this time. I opted to take the entire Switchback Trail to the summit.

While the skies were overcast, as June Gloom was in full force, flowers did line the sides of the trail.

Encountered a couple of mountain bikers working their way up, and a few other trail users during the entire trip.

I returned from the summit the same way as my first time at the peak.


I am an avid peak bagger, sometimes backpacker, and former sea-kayaker living in San Diego. In 2019, I became the third person to complete the San Diego 100 Peak Challenge. Not stopping with that accomplishment, I set my sights on the harder San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list, which I completed in 2021. In addition, I have conquered several Six-Pack of Peaks challenges (SoCal, San Diego, and Arizona-Winter). Beyond attempting the San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list a second time, I am looking forward to exploring new summits and new adventures across the southwest.
