Great hike on a beautiful day. Clear skies made for great views from the top. Tagged Bighorn on the way down...

Made it in three hours from the car. I've climbed this a few times before, but this time we made great time. Left the cars at 5:40am and didn't see the hoards till we reached the saddle and then all the rest of the way down.

Started the day tagging Cucamonga Peak, then onto Bighorn and finally onto Ontario Peak. Arrived at Ontario around 1:45. Late day haze made the views south not as good as they could be. View of the Baldy bowl was outstanding. Could easily see the green ski hut at the base of the bowl. Made it back to Ice House Canyon in three hours. A very long day

originally planning to get home by 3 PM, but this peak was too close to miss (did Bighorn first), so headed over...

went to "fake peak," laughed and consumed three granola bars (yes, three), then tripped across much fallen pine and scree to the pile of lovely rocks at the top; sky was clear today, and oh-what-a-view! Saw all that I could not see from yesterday; made me want to re-climb Baldy just to see all this from up there...

Skipped work and day hiked Ontario with stops on Bighorn and Timber. Super day, clear skies, nice temperature. Still a little snow left on the ground in spots, nothing to get in the way though.

Wanted to get out of the house for a few hours so I headed up to the local mountains. Wanted to check out Ice House Canyon and hike to Cucamonga Peak since I never had been there before. I have always went for the higher peaks in the area but I'm burned out on them. Made the saddle in an hour and a half then made the summit of Cucamonga in another hour and a half. The original plan was to do the peak and head home but Bighorn Peak looked easy enough to bag, so I hiked cross-country up the mellow south ridge to it's summit. From there I decided to follow the ridgeline west towards Ontario Peak. After about a mile I picked up the main trail to Ontario Peak and after several false summits nailed it to. Between Bighorn and Ontairo I saw a fairly large buck with a full rack, a bighorn sheep and zero people. Turned out to be a full day of hiking. Nice way to spend a Sunday.

Got one last day hike before my trip tomorrow to Ecuador. Started walking from the Ice House trailhead parking lot at 8:59AM. By 10:05AM, I was at Ice House Saddle. Took a quick 5 minute rest and then continued onto Ontario's summit arriving there at 11:11AM. Scouted the south face of Ontario Peak. In a big snow year, I think that the south face can become an excellent snow climb. Stayed at the summit for just about 20 minutes and then headed down. Back at my car at 12:53PM (about 4 hrs roundtrip). A fun, quick hike.

Beautiful morning! Nice layer of powder the whole way up from the saddle. Didn't see anybody untill I left the summit and was on my way up to Bighorn. Nice to see snow again

A cold and windy day. I thought I was going to remove layers shortly after leaving the car, but not only did I keep them all on, I added a parka on the summit! Strong Santa Anas cleared out almost all the smog, so I got a clear view of the whole Inland Empire/LA Basin. How often does that happen? Nobody around until I reached Icehouse Saddle on the way down, then about 50 people day hiking. Ugh. Great views, better than Baldy if you're looking south. Would have tagged Cucamonga, but I promised my wife I'd be home for lunch. Oh, well. Got Bighorn Peak at least.

This is my favorite peak in this area. Didn't see a soul untill Kelly Camp on the way back. I was fighting the last of something more than a cold so it kinda wore me out. There was still some snow just below the summit so I could chill my water bladder before I came back down. A beautiful day on an awsome local peak!!!

One of my favorite peaks. The summit area and views is one of the best in the range. It is also a good peak to add with climbs of Bighorn and Sugarloaf.

A nice peak that is clearly visible from town and that I looked at for most of my childhood. Climbed through the snow for most of the way and got caught in a thick fog on the summit.
