San Gorgonio

As the tallest mountain in Southern CA, San Gorgonio is definitely a peak bagging must. There's a ton of fantastic single track, including some lesser known routes that can avoid the crowds.

Vivian Creek II

5/6/21  Almost a year since I had been on top of Gorgonio, and Vivian Creek had just recently reopened after the fires. It was a beautiful day with only a few people on the trail and nobody on top.

Aspen Grove II

7/16/20  Second time up the Aspen Grove trail, but much different looking than last time after a huge fire a few years ago on this side of the mountain. But 23 miles and more than 4,500' of gain is always fun.

Vivian Creek

6/18/20  Another trip up Vivian Creek, except this time without snow. Beautiful weather, 19 miles, almost 5,500' gain, and solitude on the summit, made for a great day.

Columbine and Forsee

5/7/20  Almost 17 miles and 4,500' of gain up the San Bernardino Peak trail. There was too much slushy snow for a summit, so I tried some great new trail to Columbine Springs and Forsee Creek instead.

Alger and Dobbs II

5/4/20  14 miles and over 3,000' of gain up to Dobbs Creek for Tara's birthday! The bottom of Dobbs canyon is unquestionably one of the best spots in SoCal.

Alger and Dobbs

3/23/20  15.5 miles and almost 4,000' of gain on Momyer to just below Saxton camp. Perfect weather, and lots of water flowing in Alger and Dobbs creeks, made for a great day.

Five Peaks

5/27/18  A long training day that ended-up being shorter than planned. But it was still 30 miles and almost 7,000' of gain including bagging all five of the 9 Peak Challenge summits before Dollar Saddle.

Momyer II

4/29/18  My last time up Momyer was as part of the 3 Peak Challenge in 2017. This time it was just for fun. A long day, with 28 miles, 7,300' of gain, howling winds and freezing temps on top did indeed make for a lot fun!

San Bernardino Peak

5/12/16  A trip with Dad to San Bernadino Peak near San Gorgonio. 16 miles and 5,000' of gain on nice singletrack, together with some unexpected snow trekking, while seeing only a few other humans, always makes for a great day!

Aspen Grove Trail

08/14/10  The Southern CA big three peaks (San Jacinto, Mt. Baldy, and San Gorgonio) in three consecutive weekends. To complete the trifecta, my dad joined me for the San Gorgonio summit via the Aspen Grove trail. Over 26 miles and 5000' of elevation gain.
