EastKing, it was fun meeting you and Josh and waiting for the sunset, so I signed up on SP. I didn't get the name of the fellow visiting from Colorado. Some stars out by the time I reached the car.

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.

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2013


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
