Go early to avoid crowds!  Sucess!

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.

Good peaks await  Sucess!

Lots to explore.

Icehouse Saddle  Sucess!

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.

Great hike  Sucess!

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 :)

3 T's  Sucess!

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 canyon  Sucess!

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.

Many Times  Sucess!

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!

Beautiful Hike

Been up there about a dozen times. It's a beautiful quick hike that is close to home.

Countless Times  Sucess!

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.

Lots of People  Sucess!

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.

getaway  Sucess!

I love passing thru this area ... a nice little getaway from the crowds of the valley

Too Many Times

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.

Weekly spot

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!).

Icehouse w/kid  Sucess!

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.

It is cold up there!  Sucess!

Been up here a couple of times as springboard for local peaks.
