Outstanding views  Sucess!

Very little trail traffic on this sunny weekday - all the better to enjoy the truly wonderful views. Diverse flora along the route was also a delight - the trail itself looks well-maintained.

Hellish Traffic  Sucess!

I left Laguna Beach around 10:30am hoping to avoid the worst of the gridlock and didn't get to the first trailhead until nearly 1:00pm. After Sandstone Peak I bagged 4 other dumpster peaklets including Triunfo Lookout, Ladyface, Saddle Peak East, and Calabasas.

From Stunt Road  Sucess!

After warming up on Calabasas, I drove further up the road and ran up to Saddle. Despite its unfortunate name, it has great views both south to the Pacific and north into civilization. Tagged both summits for good measure. Almost got a heat stroke running back down at high noon. Note: Do not do this section of the Backbone Trail in the summer.

Saddle up  Sucess!

Had two days to kill in LA at end of Sierra Nevada climbing trip. Good views, but a bit hazy.

Third peak of the day after Rocky Peak and McAuley Peak with Mark and Pat. Tagged both Saddle Peak East and West. Continued on to Calbasas and Temescal to finish up the LPC peaks in the area.

Great Views  Sucess!

I've hiked up here several times from several different trailheads. There are some great loop trips that culminate with a trip up to Saddle Peak for the great views.

Geology is a treat  Sucess!

The geology along the trail is interesting to look at and adds a lot to the scenery. The section of the backbone trail west towards Tapia Park was really quite nice and worth the trek.

beautiful hike via backbone trail  Sucess!

I guess I actually did not make it to the true peak, but we climbed up to the peak next to the radio towers and then followed the backbone trail all the way to Malibu Creek State Park.

Nice hike except there are a lot of antennas and other signs of civilization.
