Yucaipa Ridge led by the Doggetts, then recruited as a leader when one participant had to be taken out. 15.3 miles, 5000' gain, 6700' loss. Started at Vivian Creek TH, up to Little San G, then down the ridge to Allen, then out to Bear Paws Preserve (car shuttle). Stats are for total trip.

Nice weather, sunny, cool breeze at times, above the inversion layer.
