Cool, crisp, beautiful December hike up the fire break route. Skies were clearer than any other hike I've had in the San Gabes!

Date Climbed: Oct 27, 2013


Took the longer route from where the paved road meets a fire road to the west. Pleasant walk-up, near the top took the east ridge straight up to summit. Fine views. Continued down the ridge to Colver Peak to the south.

In the area for a conference, hiked this before the long drive back to Arizona.

The parking area at Cow Canyon Saddle was open, although badly in need of some work. There were 4 other vehicles parked there.

I hiked the firebreak to the top, then a leisurely walk down the road back to my truck. The day was cool and clear, the valleys below covered in low fog.

The actual highest point of this peak (to me) is atop a rock about 100 feet to the northeast from the metal marker and old helipad. The differential is about a foot.

The views were tremendous. A nice, short, but rewarding hike.

My friend Chris found this hike and suggested it. It was a great after work hike. Easy to get and only a couple of hours but awesome views of So. Cal.

Took the 2N07 fire road up to the summit, and then descended via the northeast ridge. Nice hike, great views of the high-peaks, which recently received a nice dusting of snow.

I once followed the road up with my Dad when I was much younger, then the last time I rode a bike up the road to a great viewpoint. Lots of memories down in the valley below, I grew up in Upland

Looking for a challenge close to home in my early hiking days, I took off from my house, walked up Claraboya (Mountain Avenue), took Johnson's Pasture to the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park, then took a small very steep fire break that leads directly up to the dirt road leading eventually to a gated community in Glendora. I followed this a long way up (5 miles about) until reaching the summit. Wonderful view.

I later came back and did the steeper, narrowere way from Cow Canyon Saddle.

Does anyone realize this little-known peak is actually about 100 feet taller than the venerated Mt. Wilson?

gaudzdice51Cloud Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 24, 2009


This was our alternative to hiking Bighorn. A nice hike, but no views whatsoever. We made up for it with the descent down the west ridge back to the car. We will be back to capture the views of the surrounding peaks on top of Sunset.
