"This section of the Pacific Crest Trail, which heads into the high country of the Angeles National Forest, is one of the most beautiful sections of trail for hiking in Southern California. Starting from a popular trailhead at Islip Saddle, this route includes a peak that most people pass right on by, even though the views are spectacular. Mount Hawkins is an underrated and undervisited summit that is more than worth the effort." Read more
