songhikerRoute Climbed: Cactus to Tram Date Climbed: April 17th, 2004

I've been wanting to do this hike for awhile, and finally did it last weekend with a friend of mine. Was warm and sunny at the bottom, then started snowing around 6,000 ft.! It was absolutely gorgeous watching the fresh powdery flakes dusting the trees and the trail ahead of us.. The snow was blowing everywhere and it was really windy on top. Then we ducked into the sheltered restaurant where we chowed thankfully on real food. Several Bailey's and coffee's later, we took the 15 minute tram ride down. Amazing hike! I felt pretty darn proud of ourselves until I found out that a guy who works at the tram ran up in 3 hours. Wow.

Did a snowshoe hike from Long Valley to Wellman Divide and then countoured around Jean and up to Jacinto. Three feet of fresh snow made for a great day. No need to go up to Wellman Divide. Next time I'll just make a more direct route like everyone else. Took ice axe and crampons but they weren't needed.

Long day hike but beautiful views to Palm Springs Valley and San Bernardino Range. Glad I made it to the top!

Have climbed the Skyline trail to Round Valley many times but never completed the trip to the Peak. Had great weather on top with about three feet of snow.

With sticking in the drainages to the right cuts off at least a mile.

One of many trips to the top but this was a memorable one. Ran the route from the county park in town to the top and back with 13 time Catalina Marathon winner, Bill McDermott, and a few others. A fire was burning nearby and the Devil Slide trail was closed. Our group was interviewed by a Palm Springs TV crew when we arrived back down.

A nice overnighter at Little Round Valley. Sat on the summit for over an hour looking over at San G. Almost stepped on a baby rattlesnake near the trailhead on the way down.

Long dayhike by my standards, but pretty fun. Got buzzed by gliders at the top. They sneak up on you silently then suddnely there's a loud whizzing as they fly past you. I didn't see it coming and it nearly jumped out of my skin.

This was an absolute perfect day in SoCal and San Jac was a pleasure to play on. Hard to believe how warm it was daytime and my Round Valley bivy got down in the 20's that night! Now that I successfully summited, I can start checking out the nearby peaks ... Jean, Cornell, Carumba.....

Poor pitiful me! The weather shot me down but I had a successful bivy in Round Valley. Low 30's and 15 mhp winds, rain clouds racing in early afternoon. Too much ice and not enough gear.

Nice hike up to the summit. We encounted a well consolidated snow on the trail about 1/3-rd way up. Kicked steps on the final slope to bypass the switchbacks. We carried trekking poles.

If next storm deposits more snow, the snowshoes will be a must.

Great hike. Just a little rain & lightning on the way down. Got "buzzed" ("Whooshed?") by gliders while on the peak. Seriously crazy dudes. Wingtips within ~10 ft. of peak rocks, and NOT above them! Fun day with 5 others..

My Friday morning started off with a nice drive from San Diego to Mount San Jacinto via I 8 to hwy 79 - hwy 371- hwy 74- hwy 111...that was a very relaxing drive... I was facinated (not hard for a Marine) by the beauty of the country side. I would recommend this route if your not in a hurry. After stopping several times to get some photos I finally made it to the Palm Spring side of the mountain and with two gallons of water and my trusty day pack I made my way up the steep grade in the parking lot on the way to the ticket booth and rode the tram up to the mountain...I don't think I like that tram and will probably assault that peak from Humber park. Meet several hikers at the summit, took a few pictures and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The Park Rangers were spread through out the area and most asked to see your hiking pass...You don't have to wait for the station to open, just grab a pass fill it out, drop the original off and keep your carbon! On the way out drop off the carbon copy!

Excellent night hike! Did it in ~8hours. Cold at night with the wind chill, but worth the climb. Summit Hut door kept opening with the wind and didn't provide wind block like we expected.

Third summit for me (first via Deer Springs), first summit for my wife, Gabriela. We summited about 6:05 am from Little Round Valley so we could watch the 6:12 am sunrise. Spectacular sunrise! See my trip report for details, water locations, and you can click here to see my photos.



Note: the summit register in the hut is full and people are leaving scraps of paper. Someone needs to bring up a new log book.

My first time up, decided on a sunrise ascent. Left a little later than expected, got on the trail at 3:25am. Almost got lost a few times on the hike up, being dark and all. It was a beautiful night, lots of stars, a half moon, and not a soul in earshot. Just made sunrise by 5min.

We made it this time! engineer_charley and I on our second attempt to make it thru the snow. Beautiful view from the top. Couldn't find the summit log, maybe under the snow? Lots of people on the summit but most took the easy way and rode the tram from Palm Springs.
