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.

Climbed all 9 peaks between Gorgonio and Bernardino with BSA Venture Crew 51 from La Mesa, CA. Beautiful weather all Memorial Day weekend!
Our first summit as part of our 4 day BSA, 9 peaks trek. Excellent view in slightly overcast weather, making it perfect summer hiking conditions in this dry local.
Hit Shields, Anderson, San Bernardino East and San Bernardino in a 19.3 mile loop via Washington Monument. Great day.
Backpacked up Forsee Creek and set up camp at Trail Fork Springs. We then hiked along the ridge to San Bernardino East Peak and then to San Bernardino Peak.
We were young BSA Explorer Scouts from Post 4, Pasadena. To get ready for hiking on the John Muir Trail, it was required to attend three "shakedown" hikes. In 1962 this peak was called West San Bernardino Peak and the elevation was then thought to be 10,624 feet. We had 15-minute USGS topographic maps, but there were no guidebooks with trail descriptions....we just hiked. It was a great weekend hike for young teenage boys to get ready for the Sierras.
