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.
Great hike of 5 peaks with Bechtt, excellent weather, beuatiful area.
See Trip Report
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.
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!
Dayhiked a long time ago. The only thing I remember from the hike was that it was really smoggy.
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!
Cool fall day. Nobody around at sun up, but the usual conga line by mid morning.
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.
Came up via Icehouse Saddle and summited Cucamonga, Bighorn and Ontario Peaks. Cooled off in the stream on the way down. An 11 1/2 hour day.
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.
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!
Hiked in summer of 2001 when I was in Los Angeles for the summer.
Hiked as part of the Baldy 9-peaks loop. Saw a covey of California quails (~12 with lots of little peanut size babies) just before the summit.
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.
Glorious day--sunny and warm. Had a great time.
Did all three in one day with an overnight a kelly's camp. Tiring yet fun. I also saw R Pollard's sign in on Cucamonga!
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.
Wild cloud cover. Chilly weather. Great peak.
