Trail Loop  Sucess!

A great winter solstice hike with some sinister looking ghost trees.

A Fun Hike!  Sucess!

Very cool looking peak. Did this right after hiking up Cuyamaca Peak as part of my training for Adventure 16's 3-Peak Challenge (Mount San Antonio, Mount San Gorgonio, Mount San Jacinto in 3 days, 41 total miles). Beautiful views from the summit under hot but clear weather. If you do this hike, be sure to avoid the poodle-dog bushes which will give you a very nasty rash. Google it for a picture.

with Cuyamaca, Japacha, Middle  Sucess!

Trail is well maintained. Stairs and railing make it family friendly instead of scramble at the top. The flag was missing from the monument. 360 views from the summit were nice.

Fall Colors  Sucess!

Nice little hike right off of the highway. We caught some fall colors and worked off the extra calories from our Julian apple pie.

6 Peaks Dayhike  Sucess!

This peak might have been cool without the lame railings and flag on the summit. I did this as part of a loop which also included Little Stonewall, Arrowmakers Ridge, Japacha, Cuyamaca, and Middle Peak. This is definitely one of the more boring areas I've explored in southern California.

Great fall hike

This was my first hike in Southern California and I loved it, especially since the vegetation is so different from back home. I'd recommend this to any newcomer to the area

Quick  Sucess!

Fun short hike. Always good to stop in Julian after and get some Pie.

Outstanding  Sucess!

About 1.5 hrs round trip. Great views and very nice trail. Beat the Memorial Day crowds thank goodness.

Fun and rocky

This is a great way to spend an hour

Quick hike  Sucess!

Quick hike while we were in the area for Thanksgiving. It was my first attempt at a hike after breaking my toe a week earlier. It was a little uncomfortable but a good test nonetheless :)

Nice Clean & Solid Granite  Sucess!

I used to climb Stonewall back in the 80's when I lived in San Diego. Did most of the routes in the old guidebook. Loved the rock there and it was a great place to go when it was too hot everywhere else and I didn't feel like driving to Tahquitz. Frito Bandito & Bean Dip were definitely favorites.

via trail  Sucess!

hiked up with my parents. Not as nice as it used to be before the fire, since the chaparral pea is kinda reclaiming the trail.

Quick Day Hike  Sucess!

Great views. Crazy to see how much was burned in the fires.

Thunderstorm Suspense  Sucess!

Took shelter under a boulder while a rain and hail storm passed through the area. Not a single soul on the trail on a weekday. Beautiful 360 views at the peak.

Burnt Pines

Sure was crowded at the top on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The trail should be called the Burnt Pines trail after all the burned out trees.

Fun climbing  Sucess!

Love to come and climb here. Nice hike too.

Windy Day  Sucess!

Windy the entire way. Very cold at the bottom gradually warming up towards the summit. No snow anywhere in sight.

Stonewall  Sucess!

Good hike to the top.

Trail  Sucess!

Postholed in the snow from start to finish. Absolutely beautiful views from the top, though. Definitely the best summit of the three that day - Cuyamaca & Middle too.

Great hike  Sucess!

The boulders at the end are really fun. Found a snow igloo on the summit. Very well built!
