Drive Up - Almost  Sucess!

Drove up here on the way to the in-laws' house in Fallbrook. I parked at the entrance gate in the "15-minute parking" zone without paying the entrace fee and jogged/walked up to the summit.

The road to the summit was locked where it diverges from Nate Harrison Grade road (only a few hundred yards from the entrance gate) so I would have been pissed if I had paid the entrance fee only to be able to drive another few hundred yards to a locked gate! I'm not sure I made it back in 15 minutes, but was probably close and I didn't get hassled about not paying.

Watch out for crazy motorcyclists riding up the curvy section of the road. I pulled over to let many of them zoom by me - looks like fun!

Gate was locked. It was an actual hike!  Sucess!

Drove to where the trail crosses Nate Harrison Grade Road and actually gained about 500+ feet in a little less than a mile. Can't say enough about how devastated the landscape is after last October's fires. Tragic. Views were great and weather was perfect.

Drive up  Sucess!

Why this peak is on the HPS peak is a bit of a mystery. One merely drives to the flat "summit," then looks around the tower for anything resembling the highest point. It didn't help that it was windy and cold as hell when I visited, with our stay lasting less than a minute. Trip Report

Nice views!  Sucess!

A stop along a route to visiting the Temecula Wine region with the wife. Cool views and good wine.
