Ascent Trip ReportShields + Anderson + San Bernardino East + San Bernardino. We hiked up the Forsee Creek trail. Once at the saddle, we headed East towards Shields.... and then picked off 4 HPS peaks on the San Bernardino Ridge Trail. Beautiful! Storms threatened at 50% - so we began hiking at exactly 6:45 am... we were back at the cars by 2:08 pm.... Total distance was 18+ miles and approx 5K feet of gain. Good pace and great hiking parners. Awesome day and we avoided some BAD weather. Ran into two rangers/surveyors on the ridge - they were vey awesome. Nice hike - want to return and pick off the peaks on both ends....beautiful!
