davidsangerClear Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2015


The forecast had said 2" of snow but instead it was clear and sunny with scattered remnant snow patches. No-one in the parking lot and no way to pay for the adventure pass.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2013


Beautiful day, excellent walk. 9 miles, 2500 ft. Elevation gain. Blessed my day at the Chumash prayer tower, with Buddhist prayer flags and all. Quite a rock cairn marking the summit of Sawmill. Grouse Mountain summit cairn is hard to find. It is in the pines. Mt. Pinos summit marker is over by the radio tower.

Date Climbed: May 23, 2013


From the Nordic Base parking lot, I hiked over Pinos to Sawmill Mountain on May 23, 2013, starting around noon. No snow, beautiful weather. Temperatures 62 to 65 in the sun, 55 degrees in the shade. Cool winds about 3 to 5 mph off the marine layer below, over the valleys. Blue sky above with chilly gusts up to 15 to 20 mph at times. Made for a brisk 4 hour, 7 mile hike above 8000 feet. Good preparation for moving up in elevation. 10,000 feet is next....

Hiked this along with Sawmill last Saturday. Was planning to add Grouse as well, but missed the turn & ended up just adding several miles through the forest. It was a beautiful day with only a little snow left. Once I got past Mt Pinos summit, I didn't see anyone until the return trip between Pinos & Sawmill.

Watch the Superbowl or hike up a mountain? That's an easy choice.

This was a nice hike in some snow as a diversion on a drive from Pasadena to the Bay. I started from the Nordic Station at the end of the road, and continued to Sawmill.

Hiked along with Sawmill & Grouse. Temps ranged from the 30's to 50's in MAY! Very windy and still lots of snow going down/up the switchbacks from Pinos to Sawmill. Very nice hike!

An out and back trip including Mt. Pinos, Sawmill Mtn., Grouse Mtn., and Cerro Noroeste. Surprisingly cold and windy day with some snow flurries starting around noon. Probably the coldest day I have hiked on this year - in May!

Hiked this one with the kids and my Dad. I was going to head over to Sawmill to get the county high point but I ran out of time. Suprising amount of snow still. Approx 3 feet.

kc7sqdCross Country ski to the summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 16, 2011
Ever since moving to Southern California from Seattle, I have been searching for a place to ski. I arrived at the parking lot at 9:00 and headed up the trail. I was with a new cross country skier, so our progress was a little slow, but we made it to the large meadow near the summit by 10:15. The meadow area is a great place to go off the main trail, but still have a large almost flat area to ski in with few trees or other obstacles. After a short rest, we skiied up and down a small hill to another flat spot, and then up one last hill to the summit with the antenna complex. After a lunch break and some playing in the snow, we coasted down to the parking lot and were home in Los Angeles by 2:30.
I was surprised at how much snow there was on Mt. Pinos, but with altitudes from 8,300 to 8,800 feet, the trails were completely covered, with a three to four foot base at the large meadow near the summit.
Be sure to arrive early, the parking lot was almost empty at 9:00 am, but when I got back to the car at 1:15, it was jam packed with people and there were cars double parked all over the place. To be sure you can get out on a crowded day, park on the left side as you enter, so you have an easy escape route.
It looks like there are several hiking trails here too, and I will be sure to come back for more winter and summer trips.
