Stopped by this obscure and peculiar peak after topping out on Cucamonga. A local who was up there when I was showed me a more direct use trail toward Etiwanda versus back-tracking all the way to the Cucamonga use-trail junction. It's only a 25 minute jaunt from summit-to-summit at an average hiking pace. The help was much appreciated! I found this peak to be kind of neat up at the summit, if not also greatly overshadowed by it's close neighbors in the area (case in point: It's an unlisted peak on my map, likely the same on other maps as well). The views were great, though the wind seemed a bit harsher. I'm not sure whether this is a normal occurrence or random. A great visit though, overall!

Great combo hike of Etiwanda and Cucamonga Peaks, but it was mostly in the clouds. Many of the trees were covered with ice though and that was a beautiful sight.

Rocky and precipitous south face. Lots of sheep poop, but no sheep :(

After tagging Cucamonga, we sat on a windy Etiwanda; beautiful rock. Made quick time there and back to saddle for Big Horn even with the cold wind.

From Ice House to Cucamonga and then off to Etiwanda. Third time up Cucamonga and my first time up Etiwanda. A little over 6 hours car to car and I finally got to see some Bighorn Sheep!The nicest weather I could ever ask for in August.

Hiked up Ice House Canyon. First went to Cucamonga then just followed the ridgeline down and picked up the Joe Elliot Trail for a bit then on up to the summit of Etiwanda. Nice little peak with great views. Pretty hot day.

Only once did I go over from Cucamonga Peak and sit on top of the great little summit of Etiwanda, it was well worth it.

Up Falling Rock Canyon to Sugarloaf, over to Ontario, Bighorn, and Cucamonga, then to Etiwanda on the ridge. Came back up the ridge to near the summit of Cucamonga, down to Bighorn-Cucamonga saddle, over to Icehouse Canyon saddle, and down Icehouse Canyon trail. 9 hours total. Pretty cold and windy all day; loved it.

Hiked on a Friday and hardly saw anybody on the trail from Icehouse to Cucamonga. Continued on to Etiwanda Peak which was a nice extra couple of miles that really had a wilderness feel. Great views all the way from Cucamonga Saddle to Etiwanda.

Derek (that had been on Barstow Desert Rescue with me) had just finished OCS and was going to Fort Knox to be a tank commander. We wanted to do something different but got a very late start and went up Lytle Creek instead of driving to Baldy. So a hike up Etiwanda via Cucamonga Peak was in order but instead of the usual Icehouse Canyon route, we went up Middle Fork of Lytle Creek to the saddle and up Cucamonga and then to Etawanda Peak. We then hiked down to the Joe Elliot Tree and decided to catch a ride back down since the sun was now down. Earlier start helps! (:

Hiked it with Haili and Ryan from Icehouse Canyon. Sweeping views of Cucamonga Peak back towards Mount San Antonio in the North. San Gorgonio and San Jacinto are clearly visible to the East. Clouds shrouded the view of the Inland Empire below, but made for surreal pictures. Extensive burn area south and east of the peak. No marker or summit-log to be seen there.

Total time from IceHouse Canyon Trail Head and back was just under 5 hours with a jaunt over Cucamonga on the way back.

Climbed it twice, the traditional way from Icehouse. Great wilderness feel compared to the Cucamonga traffic jam.

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
