Islip Wawona Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Trail connoisseurs appreciate the look—and feel—of hand-built Islip Ridge Trail. The moderate grade, well-engineered switchbacks, the rock work and the way the path gently crosses the land are due to the skill and hard work of many dedicated volunteers, particularly the San Gabriel Mountains Trail Builders. This trail to Mt. Islip climbs the forested shoulder of the mountain, and intersects a summit trail which leads to the peak."
