Mount Hillyer Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Mount Hillyer is a short little trip that anyone can accomplish. There is a bit of elevation gain, but it is negligible, and this is really just a short walk up a hill. Surprisingly, the peak isn’t named because it is “hillier” it gets its appellation from Mary Hillyer, a clerk for the forest supervisor’s office in the early days of the Forest Service. There isn’t much in the way of a summit, but the scenery is nice and picturesque. There are giant boulders everywhere, some suitable for climbing. You might even spot climbers bouldering in this area."
--Allen Riedel, Best Hikes with Dogs: Southern California (The Mountaineers Books).
"This moderate loop along parts of the Silver Moccasin Trail meanders through the boulder-strewn landscape that served as a hideout for horse thieves and early rangers alike. Although the somewhat disputed summit isn’t much to write home about, the hike itself is in a lovely region of the San Gabriels with some ?ne views of nearby prominent peaks."
