Stoddard Peak Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Stoddard Peak (4624´) is located on the shoulder of Ontario Peak overlooking San Antonio Canyon. Despite its diminutive stature among the huge peaks circling the canyon, Stoddard offers excellent views of Mt. Baldy and is an enjoyable exercise hike or half-day excursion. The peak and nearby canyon were named for William Stoddard, who, in 1880, founded the first of many mountain resorts in this area. These resorts were immensely popular before the development of air conditioning. Ranchers sent their families up into the high country to escape the oppressive heat that blankets the Inland Empire during the summer months."

"Stoddard Peak’s 4624-foot height places it above most of the shaggy, chaparral covered foothill country, but well below the stony gaze of the western ramparts of the Cucamonga Wilderness. When dusted or spotted with snow, the peak becomes a dichotomous perch between the whitemantled world above and sun-warmed slopes and canyons below." Read more
