Nice and easy grunt up the east slopes. Register was soaked, didn't bother signing it.
Nice simple hike. Wooded summit without much of a view. Large summit cairn but no register to be found.
With Ormes Peak, "Notch Mountain", 9620, China Wall, 9060, Tappan Mountain, 8906 & 8740.
My wife and I were driving all 63 miles of the Rampart Range Road and hiking a few points along the way. This was the final hike to a highpoint in the area. The weather was mild and there was no one afoot in the area, but plenty of motorbikes on the main roads and bike trails.
Nice, short hike. Surprised to find a register on top...
We needed a short but pleasant high-point close to home for a hike this day, and Mount Deception fit the bill. We enjoyed a cool, sunny day with great views of Pikes & Almagre, and not another soul in sight near the mountain. What's not to like? Hiking partner: Husband. Dogs: Lady, Bing & Lela.
