Great Hike to the top of San Jacinto peak. My wife and I did this as an overnighter arriving on Saturday camping at Tamarak- making the peak on Sunday Morning and leaving that evening. Just a word of advice - the sudden change of altitude - which comes from using the tram will have you huffing and puffing as soon as you get up there - particularly the portion going to Wellman Divide. Overall the trail is pretty easy and very pretty with fantastic views. If it were at sea level it would be a breeze.
I highly recommend it.
