Dayhike from Aerial Tramway  Sucess!

Summer, 1993.

Dayhiked to the summit from the Aerial Tramway. One of my first So. Cal. significant peaks.

Dayhike from Aerial Tramway

November, 1991.

Hiked with the intention of making the summit, but ran out of daylight near Wellman's trail junction due to heavy snow cover.

Marrion Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Longer than I expected but well worth it. Snow had just melted enough to not be a bother. Great views.

Devil's Slide Trail  Sucess!

Nice hike in perfect weather. Good company made for an even better day out.

Palm Springs to Idyllwild  Sucess!

We went up the Cactus to Clouds, then down the Devils Slide.
3:20am started at the museum in Palm Springs.
9:10am got to the Long Valley Ranger Station. Took a 45 minute break.
12:24am summited San Jacinto at last. Took another almost hour break on the summit.
5:03pm reached the parking lot at Humber Park.
The hike up Cactus to Clouds is evil, but not impossible. We were up past the 4,000 foot elevation mark at sunrise, which is highly advisable as it levels out a bit at that elevation, making the heat tolerable until the final third which gets pretty sick from just below treeline until cresting the ridge.

Cross-country through late snow  Sucess!

Had to make our own way up through the late-season snow which hadn't melted much above 9,500 feet. Thoroughly rewarding!

SJ  Sucess!

First time on this peak. We camped the night before at Little Round Valley. Didn't know there was a cabin up there. What a spectacular view from the top of San Jacinto. I think it is a bit better view than from San G. Nice hike.

8000 Meter Challenge  Sucess!

My third and final peak of the day. I summited at 11:50pm and got back to camp at Round Valley at 2:00am. The veiws of Palm Springs and the high desert at night were impresive. I was very excited to have finished the 8000 Meter Challenge but I was also dead tired. A great end to a long day.

Cactus to Clouds  Sucess!

Major hike, made it all the way from the Museum to the summit. The snow was deep at the top, needed snow shoes but didn't have them. Went cross country on the way back (luckly didn't get lost, like the couple on the same day).

Marion Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Perfect weather, sunny and upper 50s (F) on top. Nice view of the ocean. This trail is 6.0 miles (GPS), not the 5 1/4 or whatever miles shown on the signs. Either way, it's about 4450 feet of gain and a great workout.

SJP via Fuller Ridge  Sucess!

Long day of up/down/up/down. Peak was crowded with tram riders but saw few people on the western side of the mountain.

Marion Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Third time up top--did Cactus to Clouds twice before. Marion Mtn is the shortes/steepest route to the top. TERRIBLE mosquitos at the trailhead for about a mile! Yeah, it's steep, but fast. Was up in 2.5 hours. Beautiful day--all was great until a guy smashed into my Jeep on the 10 on the drive home!

SoCal HP Extravaganza  Sucess!

4th SoCal HP. Nice sierra-like enviroment. Hiked from the tram, stopping at Cornell along the way. Smog and clouds obscured the views.

Climbed many times by varying routes

Done every route several times except Cactus to Clouds. No thank you on that one, I am not a masochist. Congrats to you if you are.

Great local hike!  Sucess!

Living in Long Beach and working what seems like every minute of the week, its hard to get away for good summits. San Jacinto is a beatiful peak only a couple hours away. Great elevation and exposure on the peak. Good training hike from from the west side without the tram.

Marion Mountain Trail  Sucess!

My first time climbing Mt. San Jacinto. It was a training hike for my upcoming Mt. Whitney trek and for the 8000 meter challenge in September. The hike to the top took forever and by the end of the day it had kicked my butt. It was still alot of fun and a very beautiful hike.

various trails  Sucess!

Most recent time was from Deer Springs trailhead. Nice trail, fun day out. Have also done several variations from Humber Park.
