Monterey County High Point Trip Report

Junipero Serra Peak

Success on Junipero Serra. Beautiful weather, great visibility. No snow on the south and west sides at all. Plenty of snow on the north side, but it was melted off the bushes and someone had been up a day or so before and I had tracks to follow. Easy to see where to go with or without the tracks.

About 200 feet below the summit the tracks and I lost the trail, bushwacked straight up. Went up the Look-Out and stood on highest rocks at both BM-witness complexes, one near the Look-Out, the other 0.1 miles east.

(hours, miles, elevation gain) = (6.5, 12, 4,000 ft)
