From Mt. Pinos  Sucess!

Second hike in 5 months since badly spraining my ankle. Hit Mt. Pinos and Sawmill. Will come back in the spring to hit all 4 peaks in the area.

Kern County HP  Sucess!

Along with Pinos. Stepped on the summit, not knowing it was the summit. Figured it out a couple mins later after walking on the bald ridge that juts NE from the summit.

Nice views!  Sucess!

Grabbed this peak a number of times, and it is always a nice hike. Awesome views and a great workout!

Via Mt Pinos  Sucess!

While on vacation at beach home in Ventura, I decided to have a look at this area with my youngest son. Crisp Fall day. Hiked to both summits because I couldn't be sure of which was higher to my son's consternation.

Pinos Plus Trail  Sucess!

This was a decent hike. I don't think that huge cairn is at the top but whatever. I touched it no matter where it is.

Hiked from Cerro Noroeste to Sawmill and Pinos. Cool and shady despite the blazing summer heat below.

Beautiful cold, icy day  Sucess!

Hiked with Tom and Coco. All the way to Cerro Noroeste and back in snow.

Here are my GPS tracks, Google Map and some photos.

There and back  Sucess!

with Travis and Coco under stormy skies. A little over 6 hours r/t from the parking lot below Mt Pinos. Included Mt Pinos, Sawmill, Grouse, and Cere Noroeste mostly in 1 foot deep unconsolidated (and tiring) snow.

One of four  Sucess!

Did the traverse to Cerro Noroeste from Pinos. I read that there is a second register on the ridge to the left before you get to the turnoff for the main cairn. The elevations are supposed to be very close.

w/ Mt Pnos  Sucess!

Decided against going on to Grouse. Climbed right after an early season snow.

Two peaks, two babes  Sucess!

My wife and her sister joined me on PiƱos and Sawmill during a week in which we hiked in southern California for three consecutive days. They weren't much interested in the county highpoints and 2000-foot prominences, but I enjoyed not having to solo them. Beautiful weather with cold northwesterly winds.

#30  Sucess!

This was Califonia County Highpoint #30. I grabbed Sawmill from Mount Pinos after having done Caliente Mountain the day before. A great day with patches of snow, clear sky and perfect temps.

From Mt. Pinos  Sucess!

Climbed with Pinos, Caliente, and San Antonio in a long day. Trip Report. Climbed it again in 2006 while tagging HPS peaks in the area.

Two for the day  Sucess!

It is an easy thing to get Mt. Pinos and while I was there I felt it would be an easy thing to go get Sawmill Mtn as well. It would have been easy had it not been so stinking hot. Probably a 100 degrees and for a northwest boy like myself, that was a bit toasty.
If you do Pinos, do Sawmill as well, its a natural.
