I always go there when it's still dark to avoid the crowd...that way you have more peace and quiet as well as a place to park.
Lots to explore.
My first hike in over 10 years. Very challenging for me to make it to the Saddle in the shape I was in. Beautiful scenery. Crowded by "wilderness" standards but you will get some time to yourself now and then along the way.
Hiked up to the saddle and back down - only a few people on the trail during the week - but lots of wildlife out and about including tons of baby chipmunks. Bumper crop of them this year :)
It was dark on the way in for my 3 T's hike/jogfest but on the way out thru the canyon I was indeed impressed with the fall foliage. The Big Leaf Maples were breath-taking as they floated onto the forest floor in front of me....all scarlet, orange and yellow.
Beautiful hike. Part of a 4+ hr stroll up Bighorn Peak.
...have climbed Icehouse to Ontario and Cucamonga Peaks. Great hikes if the weather is clear.
A nice place for a walk.
Took the Icehouse Canyon as the approach to the 3T's trail. Many, many people on a Saturday morning. It thinned out quite dramatically after the saddle.
Hiked in Icehouse for years. Love spending the night on the summits. Awesome views at night of the valley and lights. Fun in Winter time as well!
A nice hike with a group of friends, hiked up Icehouse Canyon and then to Ontario Peak.
Been up there about a dozen times. It's a beautiful quick hike that is close to home.
I will always use this as a training hike. A good 7miles or so round trip. This canyon is beautiful and reminds me of all the good times with the bros.
This is a beautiful canyon that is reminiscent of the Sierra. Quaint little huts and a pretty stream...Lots and lots of people, but the higher you go the fewer there are. Boy scout troops appear to love this place and there are lots of kids hanging out at the saddle. We took Ontario Peak trail from the saddle and left everyone behind, then caught up with all of them again on the way down. A lovely local hike.
I love passing thru this area ... a nice little getaway from the crowds of the valley
No such thing as too many times, but I have done this trail more times then I can count. It is a amazing trail connecting to so many great places.
This is where I enjoyed most of my hiking while living in CA. I'd always arrive before sunrise to beat the crowds (at least untill I came down!).
Great place to take my 15 month old in the summer. Adam I have been up here in winter and there is an avalanche slope just past the 2 mile post that seems to let go every year and take out some more trees.
Been up here a couple of times as springboard for local peaks.
