TheGoatFrom my own backyard  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2007


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.

Took the fire road up with the dog in tow. A few long patches of semi-soft snow, but otherwise road was clear. Summitted in clouds, absolutely no views. Sun made an appearance, though. Great trip!

Second climb of Sunset Peak. Nice little walk if weather cooperates. Great views make this hike enjoyable.

After hiking up Timber Mtn earlier in the morning and immediately bailing on our original plans to tag a bunch of HPS peaks (fresh snow and cold temperatures), Bob and I settled on this as a consolation hike in the afternoon. Hiked along Sunset Ridge from Cow Canyon Saddle, continuing along the ridge for a way before hoofing it back along Glendora Ridge Road. Views were mostly obscured by the haze. Not the greatest weekend.

Took just 1 hr. 20 minutes to do this roundtrip from Cow Canyon Saddle. For the short distance and modest elevation gain(3 miles and 1300 feet of gain), you get a lot of bang for your buck in views from the top.
