Part of two days of hiking with an HPS group on Thanksgiving weekend. Nice view to the west on this day.

Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2008


Been meaning to come here for years. Big fire kept us away for awhile until the land healed a bit. Nice easy hike, nice views despite oncoming storm front. Stonewall across the way looks a lot more interesting, so we'll be back.

lidijagrazulisBefore the fire  Sucess!


Hiked up to the summit several times, before the devastating Cedar Fire. Nice to see the photos of the forest recovering.

Been up a number of times. The best way is to take the north trail to the top.

BombchaserSoutheastly Approach  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 21, 2007


I gained the summit via a long aproach form the southeast from somewhere below the state park. I lost all of my tracking data on a previous hard drive so I don't have all the details. I know the weather was sunny, several inches of snow on the ground, and lots of downed trees to negotiate.

Nice day hike with the wife up the fire road, snow was on the ground for ~1.5 miles to the top! They need to do something about those antennas though...takes away from such a beautiful view.

HeyItsBenFire Road  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 13, 2008


Been putting this one off due to the paved road to the summit...picked the clearest day of the year to hike to the top, we had views of the Salton Sea, Rabbit, and the snow in the San Gabriels and on San G. Met a blind guy who hiked the road solo, "been doin' it for 27 years" he said. Looped Middle Peak with Cuyamaca for a decent 5 hour day.

Nice easy walk up the fire road. Development on the top is a bit disheartening, but the views make you forget about it.

BCLPre-Fire  Sucess!


Was a fun place to go before the fire. Can't say I remember much about the peak, I was fairly young at the time.

weeds19Morning exercise  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2007


I was out in SD for a wedding and wanted to get in some exercise before the wedding. This peak offered the perfect opportunity for a short outing. There was snow covering a lot of the road once I got to the small saddle, but it didn't really hinder progress and it was kind of cool to be looking at the ocean while standing in snow!

mnaturesonI Could Do Without The Buildings and Antennas At The Top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 12, 2006


This is a popular peak but less impressive than nearby Stonewall Peak. Now that the fires have almost destroyed the forest, the nature views along the route are limited to dead pines and lush undergrowth that has taken over in their place.

Left the trail head (HWY 79) at 10:00 am, didn't even consider bringing pants with me and they were not needed. Beautiful day for a climb, the Santa Ana's were pushing a lot of the smog off the coast. It looks like the area is starting to recover nicely from the fire, although about 90% of the trail still has charred remains of old pine trees along the way.
All in all, it was much better than being at work.

Nice walk-up, interesting to see the trees recovering from the fire.

I've done this hike before. Today, I pushed the threshold and did the ascent in 40 minutes. I then ran to the bottom. Total time was 1 hour 5 minutes. Not bad.

caerbannogRoute Climbed: Cuyamaca Peak fire road Date Climbed: October 30, 2005 and many previous dates  Sucess!
Although most of the forest in the park was incinerated by the Cedar fire, a good bit of forest (including a beautiful stand of sugar pines) just below the Cuyamaca Peak summit survived. So the Cuyamaca peak hike isn't complete desolation. There's enough living forest near the summit to keep the hike rewarding.

There are many trails and roads that can be linked to reach the summit. I live just to the south west of the peak. I have completed several ascents via the telephone line road up the west ridge from Boulder Creek Road. Since the fire, the last trailless portion of this western route is a bit easier. Acents in the winter are to be treasured.
