We wanted to explore an easy summit today and get in a nice walk as well. Somehow no one had activated it yet and we wondered why. Could it have been on private property? Not accessible? The first thing we noted is that the coordinates land on the roof of a condominium complex in a private gated community. Further research showed some Geocaches on a very public access trail less than 100 feet from this ‘peak’. Using the Geocaches as way points we parked at approximately¬†33.51304, -117.73252 on Talavera Drive well before the guard shack at the end of the road. Lots of other folks out for walks, rides and jogging were also parked here. I am embarrassed to say this walk was less than 1/4 of a mile to the point where we set up on a picnic table. You could have worn your best clothes and walked this well manicured dirt trail.

OOPS, image failed to post, try again.

OOPS. Antenna was snagged on the fishing pole, not at the top.
