Su’s Sierra Club Hike:  Here’s a message from Su…. 

 I’m leading a hike for the Sierra Club on Saturday August 22nd to Ice House Saddle and want to see if some Brea Runners want to do this.    This hike is easier than Baldy which usually takes me about 7-8 hours with breaks because that is a fairly difficult hike at altitude.  It is excellent training for Baldy if people want to do that later.  It is still at altitude but lower.   I expect this hike to be about 5 hours total and plan on going at a “leisurely” pace which is hard for me to define.   I find that altitude and the length of these hikes actually helps my running.  This hike is much more scenic than Baldy and is also fine if the weather is hot down here because it’s colder up at altitude plus this route tends to have a lot of shade.  Carpooling is recommended since a $5 parking pass is required.   We can carpool from Brea at 6:30 a.m.
