People On The Trip

Trip Report

     4th highest summit in the SanGabriel Mountains. Trail starts at 6565' Summit is at 9399' Trail has 36 switchbacks, grade is actually pretty moderate. Trail is all compressed gravel and soil and very dry. Nothing like east coast hiking.

The Good and The Bad

The Good:

The views, the dry trail.

The Bad:

The lack of oxygen on the uphill part

The Drive

Mitsubishi Spyder, twisty alpine roads, bluebird sky, what is there not to like. Not to mention a 30 min ride from the hotel to really good hiking
