hashrefVia Icehouse Canyon  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 17, 2007
I arrived at the Icehouse trailhead around 7:30am and had a bit of trouble parking. I eventually found a parking space and hit the trail around 7:45am. I ran into several large groups of people, apparently in some sort of walking group, headed down about 1/2 mile up the trail. Once they passed, I was pretty much alone most of the way, only running into a few hikers as I took a break at the saddle. The rest of the hike to the peak was solitary, quiet and wonderful. I was completely alone on the peak for roughly 45 minutes and ran into a single hiker as I started my descent.

I couldn't really see much from the peak due to the fog that blanketed the valley below and out as far as my eye could see. It was forecasted to burn off by noon, but it never did. All that I could see were the peaks from distant mountains (San Gregornio, San Jacinto, Saddleback, etc...) jutting out from the billowy cloud cover. But I honestly wasn't disappointed. It was an absolutely beautiful and peaceful experience.

All in all, it was a perfect day for a perfect hike and I am looking forward to doing it again.

Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2007


We bagged Timber Peak during the night and had planned on hitting the 3 T's! Once we got to the top we decided to hit up Cucamonga which we've done before just to get a closer view of the big bear fire. It was great to watch it at night, pictures don't describe it!

View was spectacular! Very windy and cold in the morning, but that all died down when we got to the summit.

Started the hike at around 9pm. Perfect conditions for hiking and I was surprised by the view at the top. I have done all the big ones (San Gorgonio, Mt. Baldy, etc) but this hike has amazing views all the way around! We waited till sunrise came and after it blew us all away hiked down and then ran into alot of people coming up. Do it at night and enjoy the mountain alone!

The best way to avoid the crowds on this, or any hike to Icehouse Saddle, is to come up from the east side via the Middle Fork of Lytle Creek, which is a great wilderness hike, normally no one on the trail. Did it twice, first time made the summit, 2nd time as part of an overnight backpacking trip, got caught in a beautiful snow fall, large fluffy flakes and no wind. My hiking partner, Carol, got too cold from wet feet so we turned around short of the summit.

When you are as cool as me, dates are just silly details. Climbed this one once. Tough hike, but probably out of shape again. I like being fat and hairy.

Went up late on a Sun and made it back before dark. Views weren't that great due
to smog/fires.

Decided to go last minute Sat morning, started my hike a bit after 10:30 pretty warm day. Saw the usual crowds going up Icehouse. And about 10 people on the summit, much more than expected. Great views to Catalina!!

An enjoyable outing with Ryan Spaulding, Rick Graham, Tom Becht, and Glenn Gookin. Extremely cold temps and some fresh snow made for a winter wonderland. Trip Report

Hiked with my son, home from college. Beautiful day and nice temperatures. Icehouse Canyon definitely lived up to its name, as there was lots of ice on the lower part of the trail and snow on the upper portion. The views from the top are awesome.

Hiked 5 peaks (plus Ontario false peak) with Travis via Falling Rock Canyon (great cl.2/3 scramble.) Hit Sugarloaf, Ontario, Bighorn, Cucamonga, and Etiwanda before exiting via the Icehouse Canyon trail. We were fortunate to get great views from all five summits before the clouds enveloped the peaks.

A very cool 7am start from the Icehouse Canyon trailhead. It was a beautiful day except that it was extremely windy and cold on the summit. It's a beautiful summit with a variety of panoramic views if you walk to each edge. I followed this peak up with Ontario Pk and Bighorn Pk. Great day in the San Gabriel high country!

Dayhiked a long time ago. The only thing I remember from the hike was that it was really smoggy.

Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2006


We arrived at the Icehouse Canyon trailhead at 8:15 only to find the parking lot totally packed. There must have been a hiking club of some sorts because we passed at least 100 people coming back down the trail within the first mile and a half. After that we were leap frogging a few people until we reached the saddle. Given all the people we saw thus far it was really interesting that from the sadde to the peak we only saw three people and that was almost at the summit.

It was a great day and beautiful views!

Cool fall day. Nobody around at sun up, but the usual conga line by mid morning.
