Ascent Trip Report



THE TRAIL: From the State Park Entrance, go over Carbon Canyon Creek on a footbridge, and turn left on a small trail the ascends upward into the hills. It is a bit steep at first, but graduals out a bit. Continue gaining elevation, until you begin some superb views of the Chino Hills Range. You cross over to the other side of the mountain side, and you behold the Santa Ana Mountains, and Santiago Peak, at 5,689' is OC's highest. You keep hiking through Walnut and Oak scrublands, and begin a sort of zig zagging around Canyons. You begin ascending quite steeply again and soon you go through an old gate, hailing the grand view of 1,685' Gilman Peak. Keep climbing this unending trail. You think you are going around the Mountain, but don't worry, you need to go around it in order to make it to the top. So yes, proceed around Gilman Peak, and find a side trail that is the way to the top. Return the Way you Came
