Sunday Hike (September 16th)

Ice House Canyon hike

When:

Meet at Brea carpool lot on Lambert, west of 57 freeway at 5:30 am.  or meet at trailhead at 6:30 am. Please bring an Adventure Pass if you have one. We will carpool.

What should I bring?

1.5-2 liters of water. Less if you are a camel, more if you drink like a fish. Generally aim to bring more than you think you’ll need. Estimated hiking time is around 5 hours total.

Lots of snacks or even a light lunch. We will have 5 minutes breaks along the route and a 15-30 minute break at the saddle which is our final destination. We may go to Claro’s Italian deli, Corky’s restaurant, or  Chipotle after the hike.

Extra clothes: the estimated weather is in the 50’s when we start and 70’s when we finish.

Even though it will get very warm, I would bring a light jacket or warm long sleeve top.

First Aid kit, personal stuff you might need like inhaler, advil, allergy meds

Sun protection: hat, sunglasses, sunblock as we’ll be out for hours

Hiking boots or shoes.  Trail shoes are OK.

Backpack to carry all this stuff.

Hiking poles are optional for this hike.  Not truly necessary but some people prefer them especially if they have bad knees.

Dogs are allowed on this trail but it might get a little warm for them and I don’t know if the restaurants have outdoor seating.

What are the 10 essentials?

This is a list of 10 items that are recommended while hiking including water, food, clothes, sun protection, maps/compass or gps, first aid kid, flashlight, things to make a fire, emergency shelter.

I carry them on all hikes. A hiking group should have all the items between the members.  The general concept is you are bringing stuff you will need to survive an unexpected night out if you get lost.  So even if it’s a hot day, I’ll bring a jacket because I’ll be cold if I get lost and in the mountains at night.  I have a friend who got lost on Mount Baldy and spent the night there. He was sorry he didn’t brought a jacket, flashlight, enough water, map, etc.

See y’all Sunday really  really early.

ICE HOUSE CANYON HIKE on SUNDAY SEPT 16th

Message from Su:

On Sunday, September 16th, the 2nd hike of our “let’s get back into hiking shape:  Part Deux” series will be to ICE HOUSE CANYON.  This is one of my favorite hikes and that’s why I’m repeating this one.    

The hike is over 7 miles,  2600 feet gain, and at an altitude of 5000-7500 feet, located on the way up to Mount Baldy.  Considered a “moderate” hike to regular hikers, it is dog friendly and has a decent amount of shade.  

According to some guy’s website, estimated hiking time is 4.5 hours but I would give it  over 5 hours since we’ll be going slow and taking breaks,  including lunch.  If you look on the website below, there’s picture of snow but there is no snow in the summer.  As this is a moderate hike that will take hours, I would recommend a backpack with 1.5-2 liters of water, lunch, snacks, sunscreen/hat/sunglasses, hiking boots or trail shoes (trail runners OK), personal first aid kit with any meds you require like inhaler, epipen, extra clothes (i.e. lightweight jacket).  

Again we will have to meet at 5:30 am to get to the trailhead by 6:30 am to get parking and hopefully avoid some heat.   We will be meeting at the Brea park and ride carpool lot on Lambert  at 5:30 am. The lot is in between the 57 freeway and State College Blvd, on the north side of Lambert.   From 57 north freeway, take Lambert exit, make a left and the lot is on your right side.  

Please email me if you are coming at gosugo@hotmail.com and include info like if you have an adventure pass or want to drive, coming from an area not near Brea.    We need to arrange carpools as parking is still hard to find at the trailhead and requires an adventure pass.    If you live north of Brea, I suggest you carpool separately with someone like Elaine who lives in La Verne instead of meeting in Brea.   

As for the 3rd hike of our series, it will be San Jacinto.   Then we may eventually do something harder after that like Wilson, Baldy or the three T’s.   Possibly Mount Whitney in summer 2019 if I can win the lottery for a permit.
