|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||Mount San Antonio|
| Elevation:||10064 ft / 3067 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI started this one early, planning to take what was supposedly a 4 mile route to the summit. But, I missed the turnoff for that trail and, instead, ended up hiking all the way up the fire road to the ski hut. Frankly, this part of the hike was not very enjoyable, especially hiking up a steep, rocky ski run. But, once on Devil's Backbone, the hike really gets good. The scenery and dropoffs on both sides are exhilirating.
The summit has great views of Baden-Powell and San Gorgonio; but, it was rather crowded when I was there and the groups were being very loud and, in my opinion, disrespectful. It's hard to relax and enjoy the peaceful mountain views when a bunch of jackasses are talking about all manner of nonsense. So, I was a little fed up about that, but the hike was still worth it. What's not to love about "the crown jewel of the San Gabriels"? Honestly, these mountains are one of the things I'll miss most when I move away from Los Angeles.
