Nice hike with very pleasant weather from Wildhorse Meadows which is a secluded treasure in and of itself! Road was pretty rough, but easily passable with my Honda Pilot. The road crux is a little more than 1/10 mile from SR38. If you make it past this you'll have no problems.
...after injuring my ankle on silliman a couple months ago. all i can say is it was about freaking time...
A nice hike if you live or are visiting the Big Bear Valley. Not a great view from the summit, but the view of San Gorgonio 3/4's of the way up is stellar!
On Thanksgiving weekend 2012, took the opportunity to cross off the list the highest summit in the Big Bear area. Pleasant day with clear views. No one on the trail beside my partner and I.
did this before a wedding in big bear...
A quick afternoon jaunt, but the summit ridge is simply endless, so I got back at dark...
With my wife via Hatchery. Unending climb all the way, but amazing views of Gorgonio close to the top. Sharp rocks almost the whole way hurt the feet. No summit log, we searched through all the rocks at the summit and didn't find anything. Bummer.
Drove from south side and followed trails, old two-tracks and more trails to the top. Nice views of Gorgonio. Clouds built as I descended and by the time I was back to my truck, rain was falling with lightning.
Nice hike through the trees after climbing Three Sisters and Wysup Peak earlier in the day. The view to San Gorgonio about 1/4 mile from the summit is pretty cool.
From Wildhorse Meadows. A nice hike with great views of San Gorgonio which still had plenty of snow. An unobstructed view of Big Bear Lake can be seen if you walk far enough along the summit ridge.
Snow shoe trip with Erin -- her first time on the shoes. Great weather and great views!
Sometime in the 70's with my friend, his dad, and the Sierra Club.....some old guy in his 90's was in the group....hope I gould do the same!
I remember having to find the best view because of how forested the summit was. It was a fun hike that did not receive much traffic back in the eighties when I hiked it
First time was from saddle to east of peak. Green Canyon is a good hike too. Great rocks and views along the ridge.
Hiked Sugarloaf a while ago with my Dad. One of our first hikes.
Came up from the south with great views of San Gorgonio. Large summit with nice views.
Good training hike. Lots of rocks on the trail which is kind of unpleasant on the feet.
Met a guy on the hike that apparently owned the peak, having climbed every thing in sight in the range. I almost apologized for my endeavor.
I did the hike on Labor Day. There was one other party on the ridge that day. Wasn't impressed with the old road up to the ridge or much of the ridge and its views. The summit is well rounded and views are hard to come by. The bare section just before the summit had the best views.
From various sides. Did a winter ascent from Onyx Summit once, up from Hatchery several times.
