The hike to Etiwanda Peak combines a trek up the Middle Fork of Lytle Creek and an epic adventure from Icehouse Saddle deep into the Cucamonga Wilderness to Cucamonga Peak—and ultimately to remote Etiwanda Peak, where views into the Southern California basin are incredible and the serenity is sublime.

Completed this hike this past Monday, Columbus day. I wasn’t aware of the rocky single lane road heading to the trailhead thankfully I was in my truck I wouldn’t recommend taking a sedan here. I didn't run into anyone until I reached the icehouse saddle. Perfect weather, in fact it was a bit chilly due to the winds and there is allot of shade on this trail. Saw your typical wildlife, squirrels, birds, some long horn sheep and I saw fish in the water down below. I forgot to take the short trip to the waterfalls so I will have to go back. Really amazing views from the top as you see the clouds push up against the mountain sides swirling around. Very steep so I would only recommend it to the very fit if you plan on doing this in a single day, brutal on the knees and ankles on the way back to the car.
