Bagged Mt. Vaca on the way back from Mt. Tam. Very impressive views . I was able to see 6 other county high point from the top(Mt. Tam, Mt. Saint Helena, Mt.Diablo, Snow Mountain, Lassen Peak and the Sutter Buttes. I really enjoyed the solitude unlike Mt. Tam.

Walked up from the main road, the gate was closed when I was there. Did this in a three-highpoint day that included Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, and Carpenter Hill in Sacramento County.

I completely circumnavigated tower 20 and also got on top of a couple boulder piles in the surrounding areas. The rock pile with the small cairn is probably the highest point.

Finished the arduous hike from the gate just in time to see a nice sunset and an indigo scarlet moorise over the Sacramento Valley

Ran to the summit from pleasant valley rd. A nice 8-10 mile trip with friend and UC Davis runner Chuck Bruns. If you ignore the towers, there can be some amazing views on clear days.

Like Bob said. Those last 50 feet were definitely the crux.

Ok, we had to walk the last 50 feet, but the gate for the last mile was open when Matthew and I drove up there. Weather in the Sierra was sucking, so we left early and bagged four county highpoints that day. A silly but fun exercise. Trip Report

This was a twofer CoHP day. I zipped over and tagged Mount Vaca after hitting Mount St. Helena earlier in the day. Could see Sacramento, but the views to the west were a bit hazy. I wonder if all those antennae are what has caused this twitch? ;-p

Took a long lunch and drove over from Benicia. Hiked / jogged up to the top. Nice views of snow capped Sierra's, Mt Diablo, Mt Saint Helena, Mt Tamalpias and Snow Mountain.
