Brea Hikers!

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


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?
