Phosphate Peak looms over my parents neighborhood. I couldn't find much info on the trail status or if a trail exists at all so I resorted to google earth. The satellite images clearly show a ROAD all the way to the top. So after some exploring I found the "road", brought my dog, and we went for a trail run to the top on memorial day.
I underestimated my dogs stamina. She literally lied down on the top and panted for 5 minutes while I enjoyed the view. Bless her little heart.
