Harbison Canyon Highpoint Trip Report
I started around 6 AM Sunday morning - passing private property as I headed up a dirt road
in a generally southerly direction from I-8. Avoided a home located near a paved section
of road by bushwacking, and regained the road higher up after the home was passed (perhaps
at 1,900 feet elevation).
I encountered two barking dogs that chased me down the road, losing altitude as a passed
over the saddle. After the dogs left I climbed the steep slope in a northerly direction
towards the highpoint located 300 feet higher. Got to top about 7 AM and spent perhaps
ten or fifteen minutes.
I decided to avoid the (untethered) dogs by returning via a circuitous route that took me
to the south side of the mountain; through the community of Harbison Canyon; and eventually
found myself at my Saturn car after 4-5 miles of road walking (9:36 AM).
