Etiwanda Peak Professional Review and Guide

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.
