Cerro Alto , boy scout trail


Views from the Boy Scout Trail on Cerro Alto 
October 2017 
the first photo is the trail head , located a few feet south of the metal fence at the entry of 
Cerro alto drive way on highway 41 .
Note the Cerro Alto summit in the second photo .
The trail is flat for a half mile along the creek and then climbs 
at a steep 24% grade to the ridge with technical spots along the climb .
The trail takes you through a small forest before reaching Cerro Alto .

worth the extra miles 
round trip 7 miles
