From turnout, went down San Sevaine road to below the summit. Scrambled up over a rock wall and took use trail to top. Seismic station near the top. The metal pole summit marker has been swallowed by buckthorn.
Met up with Ben for a couple of his HPS hikes. Good to catch up with an old friend.
Not a lot of fun bushwhacking through the buckthorn, but nice view of Cucamonga & Etiwanda. Got to the top a few minutes before sunrise.
Nice cool day. I hate the whitethorn/buckthorn brush....whatever it is, it sucks. The hill does have fantastic views of Etiwanda and Cucamonga Peaks. Worth the effort.
up one ridge, down another, both brushy
On a wet June day, the only sun that I saw was on the top of Buck(thorn) Point. I tried to dry out and enjoy the rays.
Combined it with San Sevaine LO. Hiked with Bechtt and Mountain Impulse via the south Ridge from Etiwanda Ave. Total trip was 16 miles and 6000 ft gain. A decent hike! Although the south ridge was a little brushy, I enjoyed it.
Actually a great hike up the ridge even with the brush
Did this route with Travis, Tom and Coco. First to San Sevaine Lookout and then Buck Point.
