Saturday, October 13 Hike.  SAN JACINTO!

Saturday October 13th, we’ll be heading to San Jacinto,  This is a big hike.  Over 10 miles long and 3,000 feet gain plus the altitude is up to 10,800 which is the highest we’ve ever gone, higher than Baldy if you’ve been there.    I chose Saturday so you could use Sunday to recover.  The Hiking guy estimates 5-6 hours but I’d estimate over 7 hours.   Bring hiking shoes, backpack with food, water, sun protection, personal first aid kid, extra clothes.  It will be cooler up there because of the altitude.  See website below for more details.

We will need to purchase Palm Springs tram tickets.  They costs almost $30 but there is a AAA discount.   We’ll be eating at the Pines cafeteria restaurant at the tram after the hike so you could also purchase the ride and dine combo ticket if you think you want to eat a lot of food.  since the first tram is at 8 am, we can meet up at 6 am to carpool . Meeting locations will be picked depending on who is going and from where.

Mt San Jacinto via the Palm Springs Aerial Tram – SoCal Hiker

socalhiker.net

Mt. San Jacinto was one of the first big peaks I bagged as a teenager and I’m still drawn to it many years later. This route starts at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tram — a treat in itself — and although it’s the “easiest” route it’s by no means easy. This out-and-back trail travels 11 […]

Question:  I can’t make it to this one.  Will there be future hikes?

Answer:  Maybe.    I’m going to keep leading hikes until Julie Ahern can make it to at least one.  Possibilities include Potato Chip Rock (Pretty far away but not as far as Ladder Canyon plus the pictures are great if you are not afraid of heights),  Whiting Ranch Loop with Red Rock Canyon (very close by near Lake Forest and not that hard, neat little rock canyon but watch out for mountain lions as there was a fatal attack here a few years ago).  Any suggestions?

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.
