Route: Various

After jogging Quarry Mountain, I decided to see if there was a way to get up to the peak with the famous PC on the side of it. Sure enough, a search came back with a trailhead near one of the public schools.

The PC Hill trail was generally tame, albeit with a slightly steeper area just prior to the col where I missed a turn (the reroute, which I descended, was more gradual). A few errant herd paths led to minor confusion, however uphill was the obvious way to go.

Eventually reaching the open summit, there were views in all directions. From there, I dropped down a few dozen feet to the southwest and found myself at the top of the concrete P.
