10.3.11 – romero canyon t.h. to romero junction

On the 3rd, I did a short but fairly steep hike up Romero to a four-way junction. The trail is well marked and well maintained… and as a bonus, had no poison oak to get through! The trail ascends about 2 miles, with about 1500 feet of elevation gain according to my Garmin. Of course, being in a canyon, that may be variable, but its definitely a trail that is consistently steep. It tops out at a 4 way intersection with a fire road (the same one that starts at Romero’s trailhead). I was short on time but if I would have gone a mile farther, I would have hit Camino Cielo. Next time.
