There are many trails and roads that can be linked to reach the summit. I live just to the south west of the peak. I have completed several ascents via the telephone line road up the west ridge from Boulder Creek Road. Since the fire, the last trailless portion of this western route is a bit easier. Acents in the winter are to be treasured.
dad gave me a ride on his back, but i walked the last little bit.
This is a nice hike you can take right out Paso Pichaco campground. It was a very shady and beautiful hike before the fires of 2003. I have not had the heart to go back to the Cuyamacas since the fires, so I am not sure what it looks like now.
Blasted up it with Jen and Baby T on my back. Bit hazy at the top.
Summitted many times. Great views at the top.
If you live in SD county, then you gotta do it! :-)
Beautiful views of East San Diego county. Unfortunately this area has had a horrible fire. I hope I live to see it in its full splendour again.
I used to enjoy this area year-around! Either snowshoeing, mountain biking, or hiking. It was a great place to spend the day!
Hiked up several times.
I have climbed this peak many times, every time I always enjoy the trees and the sweet views.
