Ascent Trip Report

It was a nice fourth of july hike i set off in the early morning for saddleback and the horn. i walked up the ski/snowboard trail on the doubble black diamond trail up to the top, it was a semi short trail but it was pretty steep but it was a nice hike and i enjoyed it a lot it was my first hike ive done in this region. i would highly recomend this hike to anyone who ski's/snowboard's its nice to see the different seasons of the trails. i wouldnt recomend going up the doubble black diamond trail, but i would recomend going up the middle trails and switching trails up to the top. but i would recomend this hike to mid hikers. semi experianced its not for all levels it does have some hard points but it its not a impossible challenge. but overall it was a good hike and i would love to do this challenge again.
