Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2006


Went up from Fish Creek. Not a huge gainer (3400') but a distance killer; about 22 miles round-trip. The incline of the trail is too moderate in my opinion; climb up a ridge as soon as you get a chance; it will shave off lots of distance! Other than that, a beautiful side of the wilderness. Go up early; thunderstorms tend to develop late morning.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006


San Gorgonio was the first peak on my 26-mile trek across the San Bernadino mtns on Sat, July 1, 2006. I went from Vivian Creek TH to San G, then from San G across to San Bernadino, then from San B to Angelus Oaks TH, then I biked back to the Vivian Creek TH. 36 mile day: 8 miles up, 10 miles across, 8 miles down, 10 miles biking.

I did this 36-mile hiking/biking circuit in 2003 also. In 2003, I actually bagged all 9 peaks. Today, I was only concerned about hiking 26-miles in thin air and only bagged three (San G, San B East, San B). Great day. You can read my trip report about the bear on the trail.

Clear early morning with thunderheads in from the desert in the early afternoon. A bit of a hot muggy day so views of San Jacinto and the valley not the best. Trail is clear of snow to the summit with the water running well in Vivian creek.

KerstinVivian Creek trail


My second backpacking trip at age 15--kind of a trial by fire. It was January of 1984. The weather was good but the snow was rock-solid and dangerous. My crampons kept coming off and sliding down whatever gully I was attempting to climb. I got within about 1500 feet of the summit and turned back due to blisters, intense fear, lack of confidence and those funky, faulty crampons.

I failed again the next year in January of 1985. I was a little more experienced this time but just couldn't make it due to severe shin bang from my Koflach Vivas and blisters on the balls of my feet. I chose to turn around about 1000 feet below the summit before things got worse. I still had a great time.

I did a short backpacking trip via Fish Creek Trail with Sarah, summitting via the North. There is some interesting plane wreckage on the north side, right by the trail.

Date Climbed: May 21, 2006


I summited via Vivian Creek Trail at about 10 am after camping at High Creek the previous night. Made the hike on a tender knee and full-out sprained it coming down a snowfield below the summit. So I had to walk back on a painful, bum knee... horrible ;) However, I was one of only 2 on the summit and the skies were remarkably clear.

Date Climbed: May 8, 2006


Had the mountain all to myself on the vivian creek side. I had gps'd my route and that was huge in my effort. There was lots of snow above 8600 feet so at least carrying snowshoes, ice axe and crampons paid off. It was an exhausting day, a dawn to nearly dark menu and I almostbit off more than I could chew. However, weather wise, it was a perfect day but smoggy down below.

We headed up on a beautiful weekend in November via the Vivian Creek trail. Camped about 2500' below the summit on a cold Saturday night. The next morning we were completely alone on the summit. A great weekend!

I led a group of friends up the Vivian Creek Trail. When we summitted at 1 pm, it promptly started to snow. Not everyone was prepared; good thing I had carried extra warm clothes. On the return, we got hit by a good thunder storm. There was lots of lightning and seeing the lightning-charred trees along the trail wasn't too comforting. However, during the last hour of our hike the sun came out in force and so we were treated to some variable weather on this mountain today.
