I used to hike to the C when I was a student at UCR in the late 1980s-early 90s. Never hiked to the tru top (el 3080 ft) until today. Nice hike up trail and access road. Views down were hazy, just like I remember it. Top features a monumentally ugly building and tower.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
