OHV/Off-road drivingGreat!Off trailRocky

Started from Maple Springs Truck Trail then finished at Santiago Peak. Nice and easy drive with 2wd truck. Didn’t need to air down tires. Super fun ruts and trails to test your trucks or cars. My truck is super powerful and strong so I was able to do some really hard off roading spots but you will need to be a little advanced in off road driving. Had a lot of fun! Will go again.

Hiking

The hike was pretty good. The trail is comfortably shaded for some of the time by mixed conifers, but there are no features (creeks, waterfalls, nice vista points etc) along the way and the views are occasional (mostly partially obscured views of the Mojave desert cities to the north). The switchbacks are unrelenting, and at 775ft altitude gained per mile, it's fairly steep by California standards. However, the summit makes the slog worth it. 360 views from the peak, most impressively to the southeast of Mount Baldy's north face. There's a number of millenium-old gnarled up limber pines at the summit too, which are super cool. There are better approaches to Mount Baden Powell that I am excited to try when they open up, from either Dawson Saddle or Islip Saddle, both following a ridgeline from Throop Peak to Mount Baden Powell with epic views on both your right and left. The trail from Vincent Gap was not fun, and I wouldn't do it again unless I was just training, which it was definitely good for. TRAIL CONDITIONS 4/11/21: Mostly snow-free through 7000', intermittent snow patches through Lamel Springs (7750'). Would recommend spikes and poles past Lamel Springs, as snow fields go from intermittent to completely obscuring the trail. Past 8600', there are no tracks that follow the trail, so you'll basically just head straight up the mountain until you get to the top ridge at 9200'. Top ridge is clear through to the peak.

HikingGreat!

Hard trail but the top of El Cajon makes it worth it. Harder and longer than expected. Take a lot of water. I went through 7.5 liters. I’m 6’6” and need a lot but I did overhear normally sized people say they needed more water. Hikers knee set in soon after I started my descent so that sucked. But until then, good times.

Beautiful trail! Nice leg burner right from the jump, but the views on the way up are absolutely worth it. Trail is still a bit icy and snow packed though, so wouldn’t recommend going without crampons and poles.

Very long but easy trail. Rocky Lots of vehicles and dirt bikes. Nice views at the top. P Good workout, not a lot of scenery. Poles not necessary.

Lots of flies and small bugs throughout the whole trail. I saw ticks, flies, bees, etc. No greenery due to the bobcat fire, forest is still healing. Did a noon hike on a Sunday and it wasn’t crowded at all. Weather was pretty warm, no shade on trail. The trail is very sandy and makes the pathway slippery, I would recommend shoes with good traction and trekking poles to help you get up and down. Even with both these things, my boyfriend and I still slipped down a few times on our butt lol. Last mile and a half to the peak was the worst, coming up was difficult and coming down was even harder. If it wasn’t so sandy and no loose rocks were around, it would have been a pretty fun trail.

Followed the trail for most of the trip. Snow eventually covered the trail so just went straight up through the snow.

Shade for some of the trail. Make sure to use bug spray and sunscreen. (A lot of bees and gnats) Great hike if you go up the paved part, be ready to get your heart rate up.

Hiked on 4/7/21. Wait another week or two. Snow drifts were 2-4 ft. After maybe 9k it was impossible to locate trail. Lots and lots of mud ash too. Wait for it to warm up before even attempting to try!!

paths are a bit confusing - download the map, beautiful scenery, turkeys, great view at the summit but definitely feels long so take breaks to refuel & rehydrate !!
