On the 26th of January 2014 the family and I decided to make a trip over to Travis AFB. This was really just a day out for a drive but I had known from before that there was an unactivated peak in the area and we like to get at least 5 miles of hiking in on the weekends so we decided to give this one a try. It was a fun trip with the family. This area is open range for cattle and they were quiet interested in what we were doing there. On one occasion we had a steer that was getting a little noisy with us and following us up the trail. I thought that he may try to follow us all the way to the summit but he turned back.
Route: You should be able to get good directions from my every trail post and follow to the "Go" point. There is a nice parking lot there that can accomodate 20-30 cars
I do not know for sure how the signal is at the top but I had 3G signal most of the hike so I can assume that it is good at the top.
Radio working conditions:
Well Maintained Easy to follow trail.
65 degrees beautiful day!
$6 Fee for parking. Also this park appears to be open only 9 - 5 on Saturday and Sunday.
*** You only go as far as the kids will let you. If they are starting to get tired on the way up it is about time to turn around and go back. SOTA can wait for another day.
Non Applicable. But I had the PFR3 with me today.

|A big row of Eucalyptus trees.|
|Interesting but probably hard to read here.|
|Peyton was always in the lead. He was a little frustrated as he likes to go quiet a bit faster then the younger kids.|
Look for me on this summit again in the weekends to come. We had a great time out hiking.
