Route: San Bernardino Peak Trail  Sucess!

Rangers closed down Vivian Creek to San Gorgonio. I must thanked them because I went on this beautiful trail instead. It was the first storm of the season, found strong winds and really cold temps (for Southern California) on the trail. The weather cleared up once I reached the peak and treated to a wonderful new blanket of snow and an awesome view.

Failed winter ascent

8-10 inches of snow made this interesting.I had all the gear, everything started ok, but just didn't feel that great after 4 miles and figured it smart to not "go epic" and just enjoy a perfect day in the mountains with a good friend. Plus, this gives me another new 'revenge' mission!

San Bernardino Trail  Sucess!

Crisp autumn day for hike in the local "hills." Nice change of colors in the forest and beautiful sunshine accompanying us across SB Peak, SB East Peak and Anderson Peak. 11 hours round trip with plenty of rest and laughs along the way with the Love of my life.

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.

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.
