Made this hike from Angelus Oaks on a free weekend while in the area on business. There was a light snow cover on the upper parts of the trail in the morning, but it was mostly melted by the afternoon. My wife tells me that I'm crazy to travel to SoCal so I can go hike in the snow. Very peaceful, not many people on the trail. Beautiful views from the top.
Good end to a long hike! Also climbed in winter on Jan 16 2012
San Gorgonio Peak Traverse: #1
hit sb and sb-east as part of a hps backpack up the sb peak divide trail. great trip and great views.
Second ascent, trees on ridge covered in rime ice after first snow storm of season. Beautiful, otherwordly feel.
Simple up and back from Angelus Oaks. Left just before 6. Hit the summit at 10, back down at 1:30.
Second peak of my San Bernardino Mountain ridge traverse from Forsee Creek. Beautiful, enjoyable hike! Cool, safe water flowing from Trail Fork Spring too.
First ascent, great climb, sweet views & some snow up on the SB Divide.
San Bernardino Peak / East - nice early morning climb.
Tried it a couple weeks earlier, but it rained. Beautiful day this time. Good views along the way.
Sunny skies and a nice breeze made this a very enjoyable hike. Definitely do it again.
9 peaks route is sweet. TR up at http://www.summitpost.org/cactus-to-clouds-9-peak-traverse-and-baldy-for-the-socal-triple-crown/726871
Dragged two friends up on a long day hike. Weather got a bit nasty for the clothing they had brought, but I was carrying a lot of extra stuff for the sake of carrying weight, and distributed clothing. They may not hike with me again.
Nice day with San Bernardino East.
Uneventful day hike. Pizza tasted great afterwards!!
The second peak of a very enjoyable 5-peak tour including SB East, Anderson, Shields, & Alto Diablo.
Skied with Alvin Walter and Jeff Ho. Consistent coverage above 8K, excellent corn conditions.
Training hike for Whitney back in '06. Great trail.
The weather was nearly perfect for climbing this 4th and final peak (of the prestigious Four Peaks Award) for each of the two Life Scouts in Troop 4, Peter (scout leader) and William. Also making the climb were First Class Scout, Lukus (assistant scout leader), this being his 2nd climb above 10,500 feet and 10-year-old Webelos II Scout, Jakab, who made this his 1st climb over 10,500 feet. The scouts found plenty of very cold and refreshing water at Limber Pine spring, and on average the group consumed about 5 liters of fluid per person for the 12-hour, 16+ mile hike. The group began just below the Angelus Oaks trailhead, elevated about 6,000 feet to the Summit and returned to below the trailhead the same day.
