|Interesting rock on the way up. Looks like it eroded after a storm.|
|Mt Hamilton with Mt Isabel to the right. Mt Misery is directly in front of Mt Hamilton, but very hard to see from this angle.|
|My setup. Coyote Peak summit behind the tower. Loma Prieta on the left, Mt Um between my pole and the tower.|
Trailhead: Pueblo Day Use Area. There are a number of small parking lots along the road. I parked at the one where the road makes a U-turn, across the street from the Hidden Springs Trail.

Route: Hidden Springs Trail is the shortest, other trails also go to the summit. Also possible to start at the base of the mountain.
Red Tape: Don't cut switchbacks. Don't ignore signs saying the area is closed.
Other: Bring a pair of binoculars for the summit, if it is a clear day.
|Looking south, through some power lines. El Toro on the left, Twin Peaks on the right.|
