|Lost and Found:
||From the three gates at the far end of the bridge, I went through the left one, then took a right at the next gate onto an unmarked trail that followed the fence line of Mountain Park, then dropped onto the Reservoir Loop Trail. I went right onto that, then at the next left turn in the trail, I took a right onto another unmarked trail, which brought me up to the transformer on the old ski area access road.|
Immediately to the left is the paved service road to the summit, which had an old posted sign that I don't think applies anymore, as well as a B17 Hiking Trail, at own risk sign.
The B17 Hiking Trail is paved all the way to the top. Apart from a few areas of wet pavement, it was fairly dry. The B17 crash memorial is a worthy quick side trip.
Violets and bluets are in bloom.
