|East Peak from West Peak.|
|Trailhead at Rock Springs.|
|That's Barnabe Mountain, center right, and Point Reyes to the left. The ocean is covered in fog, of course.|
|FAA radar dome at the top. This is about where the use trail reaches the fence.|
|If only that table was on the other side of the fence.|
Trailhead: Rock Springs. Also can start at pullout near top for drive up experience, or farther down, such as at Pantoll or Stinson Beach for a strenuous hike.
Website: SOTA Site.
Maps: AA6XA SOTA Hikes map. I also took my Tom Harrison map.
Route: From Rock Spring, hike up past the amphitheater and take the Mountain Top Trail to the sub-peak. Make your way to the road, and hike up the road to the pullout near the summit, then follow the use trail to the fence. The road at the pullout is in the activation zone.
Red Tape: None. Don't try to cross the fence at the top.
