Ascent Trip Report

This is an extremly easy trip.I took a road trip with my father to Big Bear on a Saturday .We parked off-road from Onyx Summitt.As it was mid April there was still snow on the ground.So we drove the jeep trail as far as we could go.We decided to hike as far as we could.My guess is that it was approx a mile to the top of the peak.Very easy hike,even though we were at about 10,000 feet.Took about 1 1/2 hours round trip because we stayed a while.Then we took the same trail- our own trail back in the snow.Suprisingly it was only 50 degress.
