Ascent Trip Report

this was the second hike of the day i travled on this fine fourth of july, i hiked up the saddleback ski trail to the ridgeline. from there i hiked the ridgeline over to the peak of the saddleback horn, it was over 4,000 feet so i thought to myself i might as weel try it and see if it counts on the list of the 4K's i need to do. But once you get to the ridgeline it is a easy hike over to the saddleback horn peak. the hike over is a 1.7 hike over, but its well worth it it was a great view, 360 degree view ridgeline. although it was a pretty big decent over to the horn peak from the saddleback peak, but it was one fairly good hike. great ridgeline and great view. its a great hike its not a hard hike i recomend this to easy to mid hikers i loved the views and i would love to do this hike again.
