Cave Peak-6,803 ft November 10, 2008

SirloinOfBeef and I hit the road, at 6 AM, in an attempt to find and summit the infamous Cave Peak.  Our first order of business, for the day, was to actually find Mueller Park.  After finally flagging down a morning dog walker, we were directed to Mueller Park Road and then onto the park.  It should be noted that if you arrive before 8 AM, the access gate to the park will be closed.   In addition, it should also be noted that Mueller Park has a fee for both vehicles ($6) or walk ins ($3).   After hiking up the main road to the restrooms, we crossed over the foot bridge to the Mueller Park trail.  The scant information on the web in regards to Cave Peak, describes it as having no trail to the summit.  While there is no maintained trail, there is a distinct path coming off of the main Mueller Park trail, onto the ridgeline leading to the obvious summit.  After reaching the summit, we determined that Cave Peak would be our only peak for the day.  This determination allowed us to each enjoy two Cheeseburgers. Yum.

The descent was uneventful, but spurred many discussions of future ascents of Burro Peak, Dude Peak, Rudy Flats etc.  All around a great way to spend your Sunday morning.
