Second time up, this time via Skyline Drive. The summit burned 9/2017 from the Canyon Fire. One tower was destroyed while others only suffered minor smoke damage. Very clear day.
Nice warm day, but a fairly early start avoided the afternoon heat (up to 86 F). Plenty of people on the road as far as the first downhill (where most turned around). Just over 4 hours RT.
Pipeline up, Coal Canyon down
Used this as a training jog for the upcoming Catalina Marathon. Not as fast as I would like! With Erin (jogging) and Shannon & Wes (power hiking). Hiked San Juan Hill and Gilman Peak.
Walked up the road with Kiwi the Dog - her first hike of more than a couple of miles. We saw a small bobcat dart across the road on the way up and a deer on the way down. Nice day with great views of the San Gabriels from the summit.
Nice day in the Chino Hills during the morning, Sierra Peak in the afternoon. Trip Report
The entire trip took about 6 hours. I went with one other person. The marine layer was strong on this day so it kept the temperatures nice and chilly.
