Icehouse Canyon is the most accessible hike in the beautiful Cucamonga Wilderness. The canyon was formed by earthquake fault activity. It is part of a larger system of east-west running canyons that stretches along the southern San Gabriel Mountains out to the west fork of the San Gabriel River. The shady recesses remain cool well into the summer and the canyon gets its name from purveyors of ice that supplied Southern California residents in the 1850s or 60s. This trip climbs through a forest of incense cedars to the saddle at the head of the canyon. A five-way junction on the saddle tempts the ambitious hiker with numerous ways to continue exploring.
