For summiting this peak again, I opted to use the Ridgeline trail. This trailhead is just to the east along San Elijo Road. From a nice parking lot, I headed along the well-maintained trail.
After about .6 miles, I turned off the main trail and onto the single track for the rocky steep push to the top. This was the route I used down on my previous trip.
Once at the summit, I snapped a few photos and headed back down. I loved the steep trail warning.
This was my 54th peak of the 100 Peak Challenge Reboot.
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.
