Great trail. Began after spending the night at Big Hill shelter. Headed South. Trail ascends both Ladentown and Panther Mountains (the summit of Panther Mountain is a beautiful place). It rained the entire time I hiked it (Friday May 13, 2016), and I did not see another person. Turned West on Pine Meadow trail and set up camp at Pine Meadow Lake. The rain stopped at 6 and by 7 the sun was out. Perfect.
Nice hike, but not many views - could have been the overcast weather, but not much to see today. Started from the parking lot off of Diltzes Lane in Pomona and hiked out to the shelter on Big Hill via the Suffern - Bear Mountain Trail. Circled back via the Breakneck Mountain Trail to the junction w/ the Tuxedo Mountain Ivy Trail. Bushwhacked via an unmarked trail from Panther Mountain to the parking lot. I normally don't like to take unmarked trails, but this was very well marked. In all it was 10.7 miles and took me just under 5 hours. All in all - a so-so hike.
