A CHAOS trip organized by Val Z. Most of the hike up to the 4343' summit is on a well graded dirt road (which services the large number of broadcast antennas on the summits), there is only a short section of foot trail up from the R.L. Stevenson State Park trailhead. We did a fairly quick hike up to the summit, then met up with some other CHAOS climbers at the Farside climbing area. We stopped in St Helena for dinner and a soak at one of the commercial hot springs on the way back.
Clear and breezy
About 10 miles, ~2000 feet of ascent, ~7:30 on the trail.
