San Bernadino Trail  Sucess!

An enjoyable 20 miler with Deb as we tagged San Bernadino Peak, East San Bernadino Peak and Anderson Peak along the way.

Vivian Creek Trail->Momyer Creek Trail Traverse  Sucess!

Peak 9 of 9. The last person I saw was at camp that morning and the next person wasn't until I was back in town that afternoon. The unmaintained part of the Momyer Creek trail is very overgrown--bring long pants for sure.

9 Peaks Traverse

My second trip up was more successful than the first, much less snow than May. Completed the 9 peaks traverse, views are nice at this end.

Snowy November in 2004  Sucess!

Great hike, no visibility. It only took the morning, I was home by 2 PM. I was in beastly shape.

San Bernardino East Date Climbed: July 1, 2006  Sucess!

Did this peak as part of a four peak traverse (the others were Shields, Anderson, and San Bernardino Pk East). While the lowlands baked in 100+ degree heat, we enjoyed 75 degree weather above the Forsee Creek Trailhead. We visited the Washington Monument, a surveying landmark. We got to this peak via the Forsee Creek Trailhead. We returned through Johns Meadow and enjoyed immensely the beautiful wildflowers and the springs and crisp, cool water (we didn't filter) that Forsee Creek afforded.

San Bernardino mtns traverse  Sucess!

San Bernadino Peak was the last peak I bagged on my 26-mile trek across the San Bernadino mtns on Sat, July 1, 2006. I went from Vivian Creek TH to San G, then from San G across to San Bernadino, then from San B to Angelus Oaks TH, then I biked back to the Vivian Creek TH. 36 mile day: 8 miles up, 10 miles across, 8 miles down, 10 miles biking.

I did this 36-mile hiking/biking circuit in 2003 also. In 2003, I actually bagged all 9 peaks. Today, I was only concerned about hiking 26-miles in thin air and only bagged three (San G, San B East, San B). Great day. You can read my trip report (including an encounter with a bear) on the San Gorgonio page.

BTW, yes, I got strange looks when others on the peak and trail asked me where I had started hiking and I replied Vivian Creek.

Great Weather  Sucess!

4 hours from Angelus Oaks Trailhead to the summit with a stop for lunch and pictures of Washington monument. We had great weather and were the first to sign the new summit register.

Snowy Summit  Sucess!

Climbed via the Angelus Oak trail then took the direct ridge from 9000ft bypassing the Wash Monument. Snow was solid and soft starting at 8900ft. No gear needed, though an axe may have been comforting at times.

Great day but the pervious night was very windy. Still some snow on top with giant snow cups, big enough to stand in.

Date Climbed: 08.20.2005

I did a dayhike with a friend, climbed up to the Washington "monument" which is wery close to the summit,the only reason why I didn't summit -I think this was the first time when I had to turn back without reaching the summit-it was the time ,we had to make it back before sunset,besides my friend considered that we are high enough,he was really tired.However I had a flashlight with me but I know how hard is to follow the trail in the dark.We barely made it!

Route Climbed: Vivian Creek to Angelus Oaks Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2004  Sucess!

What Glenn said below... the trail down from San Bernardino peak was scenic for a while, but just seemed to go on forever for the last couple of miles.

Route Climbed: Vivian Creeks-Angelus Oaks Date Climbed: September 5, 2004  Sucess!

Last peak of the nine peaks trail. The last eight miles down from the peak seemed like they'd never end.
