Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: parking at end of alton mountain road in alton. drive straight past the last house about 75 yards to large grassy parking area. do not park in front of the last house. despite a sign there today asking people not to park there some still were. i will say that a sign pointing to the actual parking area would be helpful.

Comments
Comments: trails were genreally dry and well blazed. the junction of the anna-goat trail is fairly obvious and a short distance up a newer yellow blazed trail leaves right and meets the precipice trail (red blazes). no signs at those junctions. i turned left on the west branch of precipice which is a very nice and rugged trail initially climbing steeply up a rocky seasonl drainage. it is well named given its route along cliffs for much of the way. from anna the stage road link was a bit damper with some greasy rocks then dry again down low to the red trail over goat pasture hill back to the stage road and parking area.
