Peak Name: Battle Mountain
Distance: 0.5 miles
Date: August 16, 2019
Summit: 772 feet
Since I had my hiking gear on from summiting Double Peak and I was driving right by this peak, I decided to make a quick stop and knock it out.
The trail starts between two houses at the end of a cul-de-sac. The trail is a steep one, so you will get a nice workout as you make your way up to the top.
I snapped a few photos and then headed back down the trail.
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.
