Sugarloaf-Etiwanda Traverse  Sucess!

An enjoyable outing with Ryan Spaulding, Rick Graham, Tom Becht, and Glenn Gookin. Extremely cold temps and some fresh snow made for a winter wonderland. Trip Report

Icehouse Canyon  Sucess!

Hiked with my son, home from college. Beautiful day and nice temperatures. Icehouse Canyon definitely lived up to its name, as there was lots of ice on the lower part of the trail and snow on the upper portion. The views from the top are awesome.

5 Peaks Hike  Sucess!

Hiked 5 peaks (plus Ontario false peak) with Travis via Falling Rock Canyon (great cl.2/3 scramble.) Hit Sugarloaf, Ontario, Bighorn, Cucamonga, and Etiwanda before exiting via the Icehouse Canyon trail. We were fortunate to get great views from all five summits before the clouds enveloped the peaks.

From Icehouse Canyon  Sucess!

A very cool 7am start from the Icehouse Canyon trailhead. It was a beautiful day except that it was extremely windy and cold on the summit. It's a beautiful summit with a variety of panoramic views if you walk to each edge. I followed this peak up with Ontario Pk and Bighorn Pk. Great day in the San Gabriel high country!

Icehouse  Sucess!

Summer, 1992.

Dayhiked a long time ago. The only thing I remember from the hike was that it was really smoggy.

Tons of People, then nobody  Sucess!

We arrived at the Icehouse Canyon trailhead at 8:15 only to find the parking lot totally packed. There must have been a hiking club of some sorts because we passed at least 100 people coming back down the trail within the first mile and a half. After that we were leap frogging a few people until we reached the saddle. Given all the people we saw thus far it was really interesting that from the sadde to the peak we only saw three people and that was almost at the summit.

It was a great day and beautiful views!

Icehouse Canyon  Sucess!

Cool fall day. Nobody around at sun up, but the usual conga line by mid morning.

Before the conflagration

Hiked this in 2003 before the Old Fire wiped away San Sevaine. Great road and trail. Hopefully it's back up and running soon, or is it already? Ice House Canyon is cool, but always crowded.

4th Of July Spectacular  Sucess!

Dad Summited by 2pm via Icehouse with my 10 year old sister and his friend Micah. He camped the night and said the view of the fireworks was awesome. Could even see Fireworks out to the beach and Catalina , Very Fun. But 50lb packs are heavy and tiring.

This hike took Sarah and I longer than expected but it was well worth the walk down in the dark; an amazing summit view.

Route Climbed: Icehouse Cucamonga, Big Horn, Ontario  Sucess!

Left early and arrived on the summit at 9:45. Day was clear and views exceptional. Headed down to Cucamonga saddle and then followed ridgeline on up to Bighorn and then onto Ontario. A long day of hiking but worth it!

Route Climbed: Icehouse Canyon Date Climbed: November 4, 2005  Sucess!

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to climb this peak because it was foggy and the weather looked bad. We drove up the canyon and suddenly emerged above a huge cloud layer. It was a nice sunny day. Icehouse Canyon was very scenic. We made it to the summit around 2:00. Clouds were stretched all the way across the Southern Califonia horizon. I could see San Jacinto and San Gorgonio popping above the clouds. Gorgonio was the only peak with snow on it. Nice hike with a great view.

First of three peaks this day to celebrate my 40th birthday; Cucamonga, Bighorn, Timber. Perfect weather, even a tiny bit of snow, enough for a snowball anyway. Saw no one from Icehouse canyon on up to the summit

Me and my friend left the parking lot at icehoue canyon at 7 a.m. reached the peak by 10, and were down by 1p.m. I think we did it a little to fact because my knees were destroyed the next day.
