Was fortunate enough to have been introduced to this range at a young age, and after a long spell of passing it up in favor of more exotic hiking spots, the lure of SummitPost has drawn me back to bag 'em all...
Although I enjoy the solitude very much, it's a shame that more people do not take advantage of this great wilderness in our backyard!
Be careful what you wish for! It would be a shame for more trails and peaks to end up like the Bridge to Nowhere and Baldy...
Windy Point, Potato Mountain, Sunset Peak, Lookout Mountain, Peak 5696, Mt. Baldy, Mt. Harwood , Cucamonga Peak, West Baldy, Timber Mountain and Bighorn Peak so far. A few more to go.
Great weather on a day hike that included Baldy and Harwood. Nice views all around, except for the LA area covered in a nasty layer of smog.
So far I've climbed Waterman, Baden Bowell, Echo, and portions of Hawkins and Williamson. This summer I hope to add many more, including San Gabriel, the rest of Williamson, Baldy, and Cucamonga.
I love these mountains. At first when I moved here, I missed the Sierras. Once I discovered the San Gabriels, I was so happy.. I have begun to become acquainted with their unique character.
Multiple times to Mt. San Antonio, Telegraph Peak, Cucamonga Peak, Thunder Mtn., and little Potato Mountain.
2014 added- Mount Baden-Powell.
West Baldy, San Antonio, Harwood, Bighorn, Ontario, Cucamonga, Baden-Powell, Burnham, Throop, Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, Islip, Akawie, Winston, Lewis, Twin Peaks, Waterman.
I've run, mountain biked and hiked this range for years and years.
I work and play in the San Gabriel Mountains - summitted Mt. Baldy in October 2009 and Baden-Powell in June 2013
Many, many hiking trips throughout the San Gabs. Love to be there.
Many trips in the East San Gabriels in 2010!
