Lenny72Training Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2016


Took the drive to Cuyamaca Peak in preparation for Adventure 16's Three Peak Challenge. Perfect weather, albeit a little warm, but nice breezes. It was sad to see all the devastation from the Cedar Fire of 2013, but still lots of trees and beautiful wildflowers as you get closer to the summit. The views from the top were spectacular as I could see my three objectives for the challenge (Mount San Antonio, Mount San Gorgonio, Mount San Jacinto) as well as the Salton Sea and all of San Diego County.

Nice views from both sides of the large summit area. Benchmark disc missing from the highest boulder, but I could see where it used to be. Found reference marks, a county benchmark, and a NASA benchmark.

Nothing like walking a paved fire road for 6 miles. Great views from the top, but the trip up was boring. Patchy snow on the road up.

Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2015


My wife hated the winding roads from Ramona but we had a great day to do this one. I told her I'd be back to the day use area in 3 hours figuring 2 hours up & an hour down. Nice little rock scramble to get to the highest rock but was rewarded with great views. I made it back down in 50 minutes. Saw only two others that hiked to the top.

gimpilator6 Peaks Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 25, 2015


I did this as part of a 20ish mile loop which also included Little Stonewall, Stonewall, Arrowmakers Ridge, Japacha, and Middle Peak. This is definitely one of the more boring areas I've explored in southern California.

Hiked numerous times. Probably the most memorable was on a snowy evening with my young sons. We saw some pretty large fresh tracks which I thought could be those of a cougar. Needless to say we began singing Christmas Carols in earnest.

Nice easy hike. There was a ton of burned area from the fires.

VortexFun Day Out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 14, 2009


Some good scrambling on good rock at the top.

The trail is paved to the top, which means the route is practically straight up. It was a fun hike.

Date Climbed: Apr 18, 2012


Hiked up the fire road to the summit and was rewarded with an impressive view. Took Conejo Trail back down to the fire road and linked up to the trail back to the campground to make a loop of it. Conejo tr. had a few downed trees across the trail and was a creek for much of it due to drainage problems.

szsz3 Peak Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 3, 2012
Started out at Stonewall then came across to this peak (it's a little messy at the top right now) and then over to Middle Peak with its bevy of sheltered saplings. Can't wait to come back in 5 years and see the reforestation progress.

Fun little hike in the snow. Missed the spectacular views at the summit due to some major precipitation. Will head back soon.

SierraSunrise85Via West Side Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2011


Fun little hike. I parked at the West Mesa turnoff and took the West Side Trail to the fire road. Adds about 1.2 miles each way, but the West Side trail was a nice single track trail. Hiking on pavement is not the most fun, but the views from the top are spectacular. The State Park in general is one of the most beautiful areas in the county.

I can see my parents house (sort of) from the summit.
