Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen.

Snow after first half mile .At the saddle put on crampons. Hiked up to Timber mtn. From the saddle the trail splits off from the regular route almost right away and goes straight up the ridge to reach the southeast top of Timber. Not too tough, should/ must have crampons ,poles and ice axe.

Excellent trail - takes about 3.5 hours to the top (cucamunga; bear ice house) at a good pace. Bring layers as it’s freezing in the morning and hot in the afternoon.

Awesome views when you reach the summit. It’s a challenging hike, but any active person can do it if you start early and give yourself enough time.

the trail was supposed to be 11 miles to the top. ended up being more like 14. took about 7 hours to complete. this was insanely difficult for a beginner in EXCELLENT physical condition. it got dark very early and if not for some very prepared travelers with head lamps I cant see us coming out in very good shape. mostly narrow rocky paths. very difficult uphill trekking. and without downloading the map, it would be very easy to go off the path in pretty rough terrain. incredible experience, I highly recommend coming early and very prepared. temperatures change quickly and air gets thin.

Bugs the first (and last) mile or so, we sprayed down twice. Parking lot was overflowing, but there weren’t soooo many people on the trail that it felt crowded. Did run into a couple people blasting their music...in Wilderness! People....no...no one wants to hear your workout mix. Was a butt kicker, but the view at the Saddle was worth it.

Nice hike! it's not an easy one, it took me a little under 7 hours to do for a total of 13 miles in my Garmin watch. There was a lot of bugs. The hike up to ice house saddle is mostly under shade along the water stream (first 4 miles). However, after the ice house saddle, the hike gets strenuous for the last 2-2.5 miles! The altitude winds you out faster and you will be drinking more water so make sure to eat and fuel up at the saddle, but be advised, there is a lot of bees at the saddle. The hike after the saddle has some steep climbs along with some lose dirt and Rocky areas, treck poles really come in handy. Overall it was a good challenge, I advise to arrive at the ice house parking lot at 0600-0700 the lot gets fulls fast. For water I took a 3 liter bladder and two 16oz water bottles. I had plenty of water left over. I also took some salt pills, water alone doesn't resupply you with the lost minerals. I also recommend rinsing off the dirt in your body on your way back down in the stream, otherwise you dirty up your car, I took some baby wipes. lol. Enjoy!

Thursday 6/20/2019 Arrived at the parking lot around 7:00 am and there were very few cars in the lot, plenty of parking, you do need an Adventure Pass. Dogs are allowed on the trail, but require a leash. The creek is still running very strong, but there are no crossings where you really get your boots wet. Absolutely no snow left. Wind was much stronger than normal from the minor saddle to the peak Views from the peak were amazing as always. We were able to see a bit of the valley below, but cloud cover was on its way. Bugs were not an issue this day. Saw one large group of hikers, a few couples and had the peak to ourselves and a new hiking friend from Washington DC, James. ***** Trail Rating ***** I’d do it again tomorrow **** I’ll do it again, after I hike new trails ***I’ll do it again if someone asks **I’ll begrudgingly do it again *I’ll never do it again

5/25/2019 Got to the trailhead parking lot at 6:00 am and there were a few spots let, but they went quickly. Make sure to fill out the free trail permit at the trail head. The hike is a steady uphill trek in a forest alongside Icehouse Creek, which is really flowing right now. Trail was fairly crowded up to the the saddle and then thinned out. Quite a few dogs on leash. You pass by several cabins and ruins of cabins. Once you reach the saddle the trail flattens for a while. You’ll pass an abandoned mine on the way. The views are amazing, make sure to stop and look around. There are a couple of rock slides that you have walk over. There were a few spots in the trail that were still covered in snow. No need to stop and put traction gear on. It was crowded at the peak and a line to take pictures with the Cucamonga Peak sign. The views into the valley are incredible. It was windy at the top, but nothing crazy. I’m 56 years old and had to take it slow up to the peak. 6 hours up, 1/2 hour at the peak and 4 hours back to the trailhead. There were quite a few open parking spaces at that time. This was peak #2 of my Six Pack of Peaks Challenge Trail Rating ***** I’d do it again tomorrow **** I’ll do it again, after I hike new trails ***I’ll do it again if someone asks **I’ll begrudgingly do it again *I’ll never do it again

My wife and I hike these trails about 2-3 a month. These are our favorite trails around L.A OC and SB combined it is very well recommended by us to any hiker looking for a great time. Micro spikes or Cramp Ons are a MUST when there is snow close to the Saddle. Be Safe and enjoy your Hike and adventure. Please remember “If you bring it in please take it out” meaning trash and anything else i.e DOG POOPS
