Date Climbed: Dec 25, 2013


Needed a stretch on Christmas Day and decided to check off Potato Mountain. Passed it many times while driving to Baldy, without giving it much attention. Pretty good views from the summit. Started early enough to not find anyone at the top, but ran into plenty of people going down.

1st time up, easy stroll. My pitbull, Daisy, didn't think it was that easy... she was foaming at the mouth and hyperventillating.

Great view of the East San Gabriel Valley. Quick, short, easy- except for the bee hives. Epi-pen in hand, I shall return.

You can see deer pretty frequently. Nice views especially on a clear day. Took my 11 year old nephew for his first successful summit. One of my favorite 'quick' hikes, beautiful nature and great way to start your day.

Clouds obstructed much of the views as a storm was in the process of clearing during the morning. Trip Report

Yes, the first time I climbed this was in the dead of summer. Both times I've climbed from the Wilderness Park. Great peak, great view, the highest point in Claremont.

But a word of advice--don't ever try to go down the fire break. Especially when the sun is setting. It's unbelievably steep--indubitably not meant to be climbed. Scary stuff when it got dark. Maybe it would be a good challenge, though, to go up from the Padua Hills Theatre area to the top from the fire break. Hmm, have to try that some time.

Perfect morning. Couldn't believe how beautiful this little canyon is. What a gem. Hiked the peak then jogged back to the car. Nice, cool, misty, foggy....It really felt like somewhere far away.

Took my 12 year old nephew for his first summit hike. Great hike for anyone wanting to get out and bag a summit either for the first time or the hundredth time. Views were a little disappointing because of the haze, but otherwise a great hike. Pretty much alone the whole time...

Date Climbed: Feb 25, 2007


I too love this little mountain. If you have nothing to do for a couple hours, go climb it! I have been to the top at least a dozen times and it is always enjoyable. Of course, you may want to avoid this spud in the summer months unless you go early in the morning or in the evening. It can get hot on those SoCal summer days! Great views of Ontario Peak, Cucamonga Peak, and Mt. San Antonio. On clear days you can see the entire inland empire and even Catalina. One of my personal favorites.

Been on this mountain more then 30 times. Have done five different routes up it and have spent the night on top. Been there in snow and in 110 degree weather. It is a great little mountain.
