A nice hike after 5 hours of driving. Part of a 4-peak weekend. Sunny, clear day, I enjoyed the transition from scrub manzanita to grass and pine forest. With all the flowers, the place had a "Hobbit" feel to it. That, and all the bees.
Opted to go up even with hurricane force winds and lots of rain. Went with my little brother and also took our dog Misty. About 2 and a half hours round trip. We had no views the whole time. Even with out it was still a fun trip.
Part of a Cahuilla, Coahuilla and Lil Cahuilla trifecta. Very easy and scenic trail to follow thanks to the useful idiot who road his/her dirtbike all the way to the summit. Very enjoyable 4+ hours spent.
Before the weekend rains came in, a hike to somewhere new was in order. Amazingly warm and sunny, I thought it was Spring already. An easy hike, except for the climbing over downed trees and bushwacking through burnt chaparral, with great views of the San Jacintos and Anza Valley. Got 4 hours to burn?
