Cactus to Clouds  Sucess!

First time up to the peak was on July 1st, 2011. Took the tram up, camped and hiked up. Then I heard about the crazy hike starting from the valley floor and knew I had to do it. Cactus to Clouds, at it is called, was the most challenging day-hike I've done. Definitely bring lots of water on that trip with you.

Incredible Views  Sucess!

Great views from the top, awesome trail. We took the Marion Mountain Trail from camp. Questionable distances, but worth every step. Actually had the summit to ourselves, too, which I hear is rare... (last tram must have already departed)

Marion Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Don't remember much about this one, but we started early and got back to our campground just before dark.

All routes on the best peak in SoCal  Sucess!

Snow creek (in winter) is the best route, followed by c2c. Marion mountain is not as dramatic but much lusher than you'd guess. This peak is my fave in socal...

Cactus to Clouds  Sucess!

Started just before 4:00am. Nothing too exciting except for a few rattle snakes. Made it to the Ranger Station at the tram in under 6 hrs. Loaded up on some food and water, and hiked the normal trail to the summit. Getting started again was tough, but once I was moving, felt good. Made the summit, a couple quick pictures and back down to the tram.

from Idyllwild via South Ridge  Sucess!

One very long, scenic, beautiful day hike. Parked one car at Humber Park, took second car to South Ridge Spring. Followed the South Ridge trail to Tahquitz Peak and the Fire lookout. Beautiful views on this section. From here, hiked up to Saddle Junction, Wellman Divide, than San Jacinto Peak. Wanted to summit Jean Peak and Miller Peak, but running out of water. From San Jacinto summit, descended Deer Springs trail to Pacific Crest trail. Veered back onto Deer Springs trail to about 7,300' elevation. Travelled cross country east to meet up with the trail leading to Suicide Rock. Down climbed some fun Class IV slabs to the climbers trail, then hiked the road back to Humber Park. Very long day. Almost didnt make the drive back to Orange County.

Nice and shady  Sucess!

It was a hot day, so we appreciated the shade on the Marion Mt. trail on the way up. Was not digging the constant swarms of flies in the a.m., however. The hike was sustained, but have seen steeper terrain on Shasta and elsewhere. Lots of crowds at the top, spectacular views of the Coachella and San Jacinto valleys. It was cool to see all the windmills from so high up!

Marion Mtn trail  Sucess!

Good hike, should be a lot of flowers in a few weeks. A lot of greenery is ready to bud above 9000ft.

Favorite SoCal summit block. Someone had put up an American flag. Nice touch.

Poor weather  Sucess!

Did the tram shoe in less than ideal weather. Couldn't see anything from the summit. Still good fun and a very impressive mountain especially from the north and east

Tramshoeing  Sucess!

Took the tram up. Camped through a snow storm. Woke up to fresh powder and blue skies! Doesn't get any better than that...
