Vivian to San G. to Jepson Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2008
Added Jepson to the standard Vivian to Gorgonio peak for the first time. The extra 1.5 to 2 miles made the hike down the steep Vivian trail that much more fun for the legs and feet. A good side trip that gives some great views.
My son Daniel and I first hiked to San Gorgonio then took the San Bernardino Peak Trail to below the 11,200 foot summit southeast of Jepson. We scrambled up to this summit then northwest over to Jepson.
