Went from the paved parking lot listed as trail head #3. My mileage came to about 1.4 miles each way, I think this is mostly due to going straight up the hill as opposed to following the use trails around the side of the mountain. Either way it was a 1400'+ gain so it wasn't necessarily the most gentle path. Took an hour up and about 45 minutes back down. Grabbed a pair of Geocaches while I was up there too.
Was with the Sierra Club on this one, so have no idea how we actually got to the trailhead (the page description seems a little different). Incredibly steep in some places (and a little hard to navigate on the descent). RT was 3 hrs for us; great workout.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
