Ascent Trip Report

This was a scheduled hike with Ron Schrantz as co-leader. Joining us was Rehan Syed. We did a loop hike starting at the Rim Crest entrance to Chino Hills State Park. Driving directions we Imperial Highway to Yorba Linda Blvd. Turn left (east), go about 1.5 miles to Fairmont Blvd. Turn left (north). Go 1.6 miles to Rimcrest Drive. Turn left (north). Drive a short distance to a point where the road turns left. The park entrance is straight ahead.
We started on the South Ridge road. We walked east to Peak 1476. It was right off the road.. It was a short distance to the summit. There was a pipe marker on the top. Continued east off the summit to the road. Continued on to Peak 1685. Again it was right off the road. The west side was too bushy. I walked around the peak to east side. It was a short bush free hike to the summit. I found no marker on the summit.
We continued on the road to San Juan Hill. There was a benchmark and a cement post on the summit.
From San Juan, walked back down the road, walked a short distance west to a path that led us to Four Corners. There are tables and a porta-potty at Four Corners. From Four Corners, we walked west on Telegraph Canyon about 1/10 of a mile to a path on our right. There was a sign saying North Ridge. We
followed this path which turned into a road to the North Ridge. We went about 2 miles on North Ridge to Gilman. There was a benchmark on the summit. From Gilman we headed southwest, then south down a path to Telegraph Canyon Trail, turned right (west) and walked about ½ mile to Easy Street. We took Easy Street back to Rimcrest.
After these peak, I did two Peakbagger peaks of off Carbon Canyon Road. Peak 1460 and 1445 are just north of Olinda Village. The road start at the end of Lilac Road. This area is actually part of the Chino State Park, north of Carbon Canyon Rd. It was an easy road walk to these two bumps. 1460 is a slight bump just before 1445. I couldn’t find any benchmark. I did find a white PVC post sticking in the ground. 1445 had several towers and was surrounded by fencing.
All and all, it was a beautiful day. Walking among rolling green hills with snow capped mountains in the background.
