Date Climbed: May 3, 2015


Beautiful part of the San Gabriel mountains, with great views in all directions -- east to Baden Powell, southeast to Baldy, south to Hawkins, southwest to Islip, Waterman, Twins Peak, and Wilson, northwest to to Williamson, and north to Mojave Desert and mountains in the distant haze. The views of Baldy were especially spectacular.

Date Climbed: Dec 10, 2014


Heather and I parked below Windy Gap at 7am and then hiked up Baden-Powell, Burnham, Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, and Islip. We got back to the car at 2pm and then drove around hiking up Akawie, Winston, and Lewis. The next day we did both summits of Twin Peaks as well as Waterman.

I can't begin to explain how gorgeous this hike was this crisp December evening. The clouds moved like waves through the mountains, the air was brisk (high 30's to low 40's), there was no snow on the ground, the trail was nicely maintained, and the sunset was one to remember.

Strong Santa Ana conditions in SoCal today. Winds sustained at 25-30 mph up high, gusts above 50. Still, enjoyable hike via Dawson Saddle, up and down in 1 hr, 45 mins. Huffed up Mount Lewis across the way afterwards, 25 mins round trip.

My wife Shinta's birthday was the 3rd, but we had other obligations, so had to do the hike on the 4th. Nice weather mostly, but got cold and windy near the summit. Very nice afternoon jaunt!

Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2012
the easiest hike ever, however done during a major snowstorm, it is as far as I remember the only hike when I haven't met anyone at all!

This is also my first successful hike.

i did this with my wife on 10/10/10. she's not a big hiker but she was able to conquer this pretty easily. maybe 5 miles round trip. the big plaque on top is pretty cool and the view is nice, albeit bee-filled.

Deb1st of 4 Peaks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 26, 2012


From Islip Saddle, I decided to hit the furthest peak on my list first and work my way back home tagging Hawkins, Middle Hawkins and Islip. Quite icy on lower trail sections then no need for crampons after Windy Gap. Enjoyable hike but the views suck thanks to poor air quality and burnt trees.
