asmrzLa Quinta to Sugarloaf TH
Date Climbed: Jan 5, 2012

asmrz

Penelope May-Smrz and I started from the end of Eisenhower Street and Avenida Bermuda in La Quinta on January 05, 2012 via the Boo Hoff trail. We connected with the Guadalupe Trail and hiked up to the base of Martinez Mountain. From there we connected with Cactus Springs trail and finished at Sugarloaf Cafe TH on Highway 74. This is yet another great Santa Rosa Mountains hike, about 15 miles and 5,600 feet of elevation gain. Leave one car at Sugarloaf TH and another about 0.3 miles after you reach Avenida Bermuda where the La Quinta TH parking area is located

asmrzMartinez Mountain from Salton Sea  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 21, 2011

asmrz

A very special and unusual trip. Penelope May and I started at the mouth of Martinez Canyon west of the town of Valerie and the Salton Sea at elevation -26', on January 20, 2011. Went up Martinez Canyon, no trail, branched into Tahquitz Canyon, located running water at Aqua Alta Spring, bivied above this. Next morning scrambled 2,000' up a huge talus field to the summit of Martinez Mountain (cc 6,560') and hiked to Highway 74 at Sugarloaf (Sawmill TH). About 30 miles of incredibly rugged cross-country terrain. The trip just about traverses the Santa Rosa Wilderness. WE left one car at Martinez Canyon, second one at Sugarloaf TH. Awesome scenery, untouched terrain, unvisited, pristine landscape.

P.S. Just wanted to mention, that there was a rather complicated rescue in Martinez Canyon in early January 2013. Hiker from Arizona decided to do the above outing as a day hike. After three nights in the mountains , he was rescued by helicopter barely alive. Riverside Mountain Rescue did the pick up. Don't underestimate this "scramble".
