With a good friend to celebrate his graduation.
Hiked with Mother and Cousin. A great ice-breaker hike to start the new year with many more hikes to come.
Easy going hike from just past Red Box. Did San Gabriel Peak first.
This was part of a 5 peak day in the San Gabriels. Beautiful day above the smog in the basin.
Hiked this one from the Sam Merrill trail head on Lake Ave. Started hitting snow at about 4000' and it got serious at Markum saddle. Lots of daylight burned by breaking trail through upwards of 2' snow drifts to the top of San Gabriel first. Then did Disappointment and Lowe before descending down by sunset.
Hiked this one with the rest of the bunch in this area, twice. Easiest clear-out of peaks from one trailhead in the San Gs. Used Eaton Saddle as well as Disappointment trailhead.
Did this peak together with San Gabriel Peak. Gorgeous views from the top.
Have done a couple of times, along with Markam, San Gabriel and Lowe, from the Sam Merrill Trail
Did this one in the same day as Lowe and Gabriel. I think I missed deception. Apparently it's like right around the corner. I am dumb.
My wife and I (with our dog - badger) hit Mt. Lowe, San Gabriel Peak and Mt. Dissappointment today. Great hike from Eaton Saddle. The upper slopes were snow covered still, but you could hike with a light jacket. There were a couple of sketchy sections along the trail were the snow was really compacted and icy. Trekking poles helped. Great views...Baldy was all snowy.
Nice page for one of our local peaks. Well worth a visit!
Hit Disapointment and San Gabriel today. The best view I had ever seen, you could see the ocean clearly, Catalina and the other islands as well. Amazing.
Not quite as much fun as Disappointment Peak in the Sierra, but worth a visit nonetheless. Scenic area.
Good trails connecting other peaks. Great day good weather.
Did Markham, Mount Lowe and San Gabriel Peak first and finished the day off with Mt. Disappointment. Four easy peaks in three hours. Views west and north were quite good.
Quick jaunt with old friend. First climbed San Gabriel Peak. Great views of Josephine Peak. A good area to gather a bunch of Hundred Peaks.
Climbed 8 HPS this day: San Gabriel, Disappointment, Markham, Occidental, Wilson, Lowe, Barley Flats, Sally. Better planning and someone could easily climb 15-20.
Only one, in fact. But Matthew and I had a fun day tagging HPS peaks in the area, 13 in all. Trip Report
I've hiked and run to this summit many times. I've come at it from the Mt. Disappointment Fire Road trailhead on both the fire road and San Gabriel Peak Trail; from the Eaton Saddle trailhead; and from Switzers through Bear Canyon.
