Route: Mt Manuel  Sucess!

Overgrown brush and dead trees mark the last 1 mile to the peak. Overall a good demanding trail.

Quick dayhike between between storm systems. Peak was clouded over but it didn't rain. Still a fair amount of down trees on the trail.

Pics are here

This trail is pretty overgrown beginning about 2000 ft elevation to the summit. I spent a lot of time bent over and working my way through the brush. There were a lot of flies this time of year as well. It was a great work out to ensure I was prepared to climb Junipero Serra the following week. The weather was perfect, partly cloudy and temps around 70. There are great views much of the way as well. I was impressed with the views inland toward the Vantana Wilderness Area.

Manuel Peak is one of those peaks where at the end of the day, I knew I'd climbed it, but I couldn't tell you for sure where/when it was! All I know is it was one of the little bumps we climbed along the ridge.

The hike via Post Summit was very pleasant; perfect weather and abundant wildflowers made for a highly enjoyable day.

Very hot in the sun, some crummy sections on the trail below, but fantastic views to the east, south, and west.

Clouds and rain, clouds and rain make for a very nice hike, but not for good photos :-P Didn't see a single person on the trail but saw many down at the trailhead and at the restaurant / giftshop.
