This rigorous and exciting up-and-down trip leads experienced hikers to the highest mountain in the San Gabriel Mountains, the timberline summit of Mount San Antonio. From the loftiest summit in the San Gabriel Mountains, hikers are rewarded with vistas of a vast sweep of coastal, desert, and mountain scenery encompassing a great portion of southern California. Hikers completing this strenuous up-and-down trek on a steep, unmaintained trail will fully understand what John Muir meant when he called the San Gabriel Mountains “more rigidly inaccessible than any other I ever attempted to penetrate. " This is prime bighorn sheep habitat, and the wary hiker is likely to see one or more of these agile, majestic creatures.
