The real views are from the flats below the summit. Awesome.
One of several on a winter traverse of the San Gabriels.
Nice day hiking through the snow. Came down from Windy Gap to the Hawkins-es. Nice views when the sun burned through the fog for a moment at a time
Up the fire road to South Hawkins followed by Sadie Hawkins and wrapping up with Middle Hawkins returned by Windy Gap.
Hawkins Ridge Trail, great hike!
From Dawson Saddle, hit Hawkins then Middle Hawkins
Heather and I parked below Windy Gap at 7am and then hiked up Baden-Powell, Burnham, Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, and Islip. We got back to the car at 2pm and then drove around hiking up Akawie, Winston, and Lewis. The next day we did both summits of Twin Peaks as well as Waterman.
Part of 5-peak traverse of the Hawkins Ridge from Dawson Saddle. #3 in sequence.
Did all 3 Hawkins in one day from windy gap. Nice hiking.
Started at Windy Gap in picture perfect weather. Saw 4 bighorn sheep just west of Windy Gap and hiked under a 'murder' of crows on the north side of the summit. Cut my plans short of continuing over to Mt. Hawkins and Copter Ridge when I completely overshot Middle Hawkins and landed at the PCT junction. Not much of an excuse, but I lost my nerve. Went and tackled Kratka Ridge instead.
Up Windy Gap Trail onto PCT then down Hawkins Ridge to S. Hawkins. Fire road back to trail head. Saw 4 Bighorn Sheep west of Windy Gap.
up to windy gap from crystal lake, over to hawkins ridge, down the ridge, back down to crystal lake.
On a bump-tagging expedition from Vincent Gap to Islip.
fun getting there along windy gap, but not my favorite summit of all time. kind of anticlimactic summit actually...but w.g. is a cool place and worth a hike.
With Islip, Hawkins, Sadie Hawkins & South Hawkins
I had plenty of daylight to tag something off the main drag. I enjoyed Middle Hawkins more than the other 3 - Throop, Hawkins and Islip. Pretty sad to see thousands of burnt trees.
Windy Gap Trail to Mt. Islip and then PCT to Hawkins Ridge, Middle Hawkins and South Mt. Hawkins. Perfect day!
with South Mt. Hawkins. beware the poodle dog bush!
From Crystal Lake to Windy Gap and down Hawkins ridge. Great loop.
