Augie MedinaRoute: From Forsee Creek TH Date Climbed: July 1, 2006  Sucess!

Augie Medina

Did this peak as part of a four peak traverse (the others were Shields, San Bernardino Peak, and San Bernardino Pk East). While the lowlands baked in 100+ degree heat today, we enjoyed 75 degree weather above the Forsee Creek Trailhead. We visited the Washington Monument, survey landmark. We returned through Johns Meadow and enjoyed immensely the beautiful wildflowers and the springs and crisp, cool water (we didn't filter) that Forsee Creek afforded.

Going to Vegas the weekend before seemed to have done the necessary damage. I actually got a little altitude sick around 10,000 feet; this is only the 2nd or 3rd time ever. I wasn't physically tired but didn't feel well. Pushed through anyway and made it. I think it's about 14 miles round-trip rather than 12. Came down fast and still took 2h45min.

First time up this trail. Couldn't ask for better conditions. Clear sky, no wind, low 70s temps all day. Summited Anderson & San Bdno East. Trail was almost completely dry, no snow or ice gear required. Thanks wingding for joining me!

Conditions about the same as last weekend with a little less snow/ice at lower elevations. Met a real nice couple at the summit about 25 min after I reached. Only people I saw all day! Did this along with East San Bernardino Peak. Summit register is in bad shape if anyone is planning on going up there and wants to replace it.

Great morning! Nobody on the trail early, and only a few on the way down. Saw some real fresh mountain lion tracks in the snow between Jackstraw Spring/ Trail Fork Spring and Dollar Lake Saddle/ Angelus Camp junctions. Lots of snow/ ice from the Dollar Lake Saddle/ Angelus Camp junction on up. At 9:00 A.M. it was almost all ice with a real thin powder dust on to so crampons and ice axe should be a must!

Nine Peaks dayhike. To call all of these "peaks" is a bit misleading, most of them are just bumps along a ridge, but it was pretty fun anyway.

After hiking steadily for 19 hrs and almost 37 miles later (from Angelus Oaks to San Gorgonio's summit and back to Angelus Oaks), I bagged all of the 9 peaks in the San Bernardino Mountain Traverse in a day. I don't plan to repeat this ever again!!!......the last 8 miles were excruciatingly difficult. Both my legs and back wanted to cramp. I developed several feet blisters and in the last few miles I felt dizzy, almost stumbling down the trail at times (mainly from exhaustion).



Anyway, for those who want to suffer, this is how my day went:



I left my home in Los Angeles at 2:30am Saturday, June 12th and arrived at the Angelus Oaks (a.k.a. San Bernardino Peak) trailhead just after 4:00am.



  • 4:20am: I started the hike from Angelus Oaks (5960').


  • 8:52am: bagged San Bernardino Peak (10,649').


  • 9:38am: bagged San Bernardino East Peak (10,691').


  • 10:18am: bagged Anderson Peak (10,864').


  • 10:54am: bagged Shields Peak (10,680').


  • 11:26am: bagged Alto Diablo Peak (10,563').


  • 12:55pm: bagged Charlon Peak (10,806').


  • 1:14pm: bagged Little Charlton Peak (10,696').


  • 2:04pm: bagged Jepson Peak (11,205').


  • 2:47pm: bagged San Gorgonio (11,499').


  • 3:15pm: left San Gorgonio's summit.


  • 11:13pm: arrived at Angelus Oaks trailhead.




Out of all 9 peaks, I truly enjoyed the views from "Shields Peak."

Had planned an overnight trip but just kept walking and made a day trip out of this. Up Falls Creek, across picking up Shields, Anderson, and SB East before descending down Momyer. A long day but a good trip. Momyer was quite overgrown and I looked like I'd been in a cat fight when I got down.

Hiked the Forsee Creek route up. Summited about 1PM then came down the south side to Mill Creek. Had a run-in with a Pacific Black Rattler. Unusual behavior for a snake. It would not flee. In spite of my attempts to scare it away, it stood it's ground. An eye opening experience.

A very unexpected absence of people filled the entire day. I saw zero people until coming to the town of Forest Falls. And that was ON LABOR DAY!

I did Anderson Peak as part of a day-hike across the so-called "Nine Peaks." Great day. I left my bike at Angelus Oaks. I parked my van at the Vivian Creek trailhead. I was on the trail at 6:30am and on San Gorgonio by 9:40am. Perfect day, except a little windy (30-50mph) on SanG and Jepson. I'm not complaining because I had crystal clear skies, absolutely smogless. I could see all the mtn ranges, the deserts, and even the blue horizon of the ocean. Amazingly clear day, especially for August!



Anyway. I then hiked 10 miles across Jepson (11,205), Little Charlton (10,676), Charlton (10,806), Alto Diablo (or at least I think I bagged it -- I never did find the log book), Sheilds Peak (10,701), Anderson Peak (10,864), SanB East Peak (10,691), and finally San Bernardino (10,649). Then I hiked the 8 miles down to the Angelus Oaks trailhead to my bike. Then I had to bike the 12 miles back to my van. I don't recommend doing the bike. My legs and back were wanting to cramp up.



The 26-mile hike took 9 hrs, 40 min. Good prep for my attempt of the Pikes Peak Marathon a week from Sunday.



Five quarts of liquids were enough for me (3 water in my camelbak and 2 gatorades). Lot of weight, but it's worth it since it's dry across the range.



I was glad that I went the direction that I did (up SanG first and then across to SanB and down). I don't think I would want to face Jepson and SanG after hiking for 17 or 18 miles coming from Angelus Oaks. It was nice to get the big dogs behind me at the first. Also, if going the opposite direction than I went, it would be more tempting to skip some peaks. Both Charltons are quite a ways off the main trail and pretty steep. Anderson and Shields are also a little ways off the trail. I wasn't as tired when I came to those as I would have been coming from the other direction. Of course, my whole goal of the hike was to bag all nine peaks which I did -- or at least I think I did. I signed 8 log books and I never found a log book for Alto Diablo (of course, only the Boy Scouts, not the Forest Service, recognize that peak).



The "Nine Peaks" is a great hike as long as you're willing to carry the extra water and have the stamina to go for 26 miles.

Very gentle trail...I enjoyed every minute of the rain, hail, sleet, sun, fog and wind...also climbed Shields Peak before the thunder started to get consistent.
