I climbed the Mt. Kyogatake (1625.2 m) in Ono City, Fukui Prefecture, on May 11th, 2019. This time, I drove the wide major forest road Hoonji Line from Ono City, parked in the Choshigaguchi observation space, and I chose Mt. Hozuki course and made a round trip, which is the shortest route.
Mt. Kyogatake is a volcano that made the Rokuroshi highlands by a volcanic eruption long ago. The shape of the mountain viewed from Ono City is very characteristic. While climbing, there are steep slopes, rough ridgeways and the pleasant grassy ridge lines that are full of variety. Also, the mountain has so many attractions of climbing such as fantastic views, various animals and plants.
Here is the Choshigaguchi observation space on the wide major forest road Hoonji Line. There is a parking space.The trail entrance of the Mt. Hozuki course is located about 30 meters from here.
