    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed Trabuco, Bell, Yeager Loop Trail

    about 1 month ago

    this one is a butt kicker and should not be done on a hot day or a beginner. the first section of Trabucco is great and pretty easy with a gradual climb, once you hit Los Pinos it gets a bit steeper but nothing too major. the butt kicker is coming down bell and yearger. it is SUPER steep, very loose terrain like sandy beach loose and you will end up on your butt, walking sideways, falling and possible poison oak. We got all of the above and it puts a lots of stress on your knees. It is very narrow and tree branches hitting you in the face. I loved the first 3/4 hated this section and it was about 4 miles of this. You keep saying "Are you kidding me" just when you thought you were done here comes another section. it is full of shade most the way but the bugs came out in this area. the trail is not marked once you hit Los Pinos peak so you have to really pay attention or you can miss it especially once you get to the meadow and ring the bell. One you ring the bell take a few steps backward to the trail on your right and follow it back into the forest.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed San Jacinto Peak from The Tramway

    11 months ago

    We tackled our 5th peak #sanjacinto in our #sixpackofpeaks challenge. This was a little harder than normal since Shawn had been sick with bronchitis for almost a month and I got a cyst removed from my foot Monday and was sick Tues and Wednesday. It was slow going but we made it. The miles weren't bad it was just hard breathing for us both. One more peak to go.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed San Gorgonio Summit via South Fork

    11 months ago

    We completed our final peak #sangorgonio in our #2107 #sixpackofpeaks challenge. This beast took us 11 hours and was 22 miles roundtrip. We went up to 11,500 elevations via #southforktrail in #angelusoaks #california. The elevation gain was 4858. This is the highest peak in all of #southerncalifornia. We opted for this trail over Vivian Creek due to the elevation. We decided we could go longer miles easier than the steep incline since we were both coming off bronchitis and being sick for a few weeks. We started at 7:10 am and ended at 6:35 pm. We did stop for lunch and spent about 30 minutes chilling on the peak enjoying the unparalleled views atop and another snack before the long hike back. It seemed like the trail would never end. It just kept going and going and going. Absolutely epic day and grateful to explore these epic journeys with the one I love #shawnbrown and great friends #reneedelbarba. #Alltrails said it was 18.8 miles but we both GPS it at 22 miles Round Trip. #daniwalker #danilynwalker #socalhiker #killinit #californiahikers, #optoutside #viewfromthetop #blessed #neverstopexploring #sticktogetherinloveforever

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed San Bernardino Peak Trail via Angelus Oaks

    about 1 year ago

    We tackled our 4th peak #SanBernardinoMountain for our 2017 #sixpackofpeaks challenge. We trekked up to the top of 10,649 feet. It took us about 6 hours to reach it and was such a beautiful hike. I have to admit this has to be my So Cal favorite now with stunning views and scenery all along the way. It was 18-miles out-and-back (we ventured off) and over 4,600 vertical feet. It was a very long day hike but worth all of the aches and pains today. We knew we would need a lot of water (4 liters each min.) so we dropped frozen water bottles and full bladders along the way so on our way back we had ice cold water and it saved us from lugging it all up and back. The first 5 miles is a gradual climb and was pretty easy compared to the rest. We actually dropped my pack 1 mile from the peak and Shawn’s ½ mile. We were so tired of carrying them and made the rest much easier. We kept looking up wondering “how much further” we could almost touch the sky but it kept going and going and going. Once we summit we got to take in the breathtaking views of Big Bear Lake. Lucky for us that there we light sprinkles and it kept us cool since it was a nice hot day about 85 degrees. I’d definitely do this again but would love to camp out.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed Mt. San Antonio & Mt. Baldy Notch Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Tackled our 3rd peak in our Six pack of Peaks challenge. Mt. Baldy. Was 10 miles with elevation over 10,064, elevation gain was 3,900 and took us 9 hours. Devils backbone was no joke. it was a gorgeous day out and was about 95 degrees with a winds all day. We went up via Mankers Trail head and the lifts were closed so we had to hike all the way up and down. Mankers trail down is a nightmare and I would strongly recommend poles coming down. The creek was a nice treat for washing the dust, cooling down and soaking feet. This trail has lots of dust, boulders and loos rocks the entire way and massive tree roots to climb over. It is not marked well so easy to get off trail.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed Icehouse Canyon to Cucamonga Peak Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Unlike most girls I didn't ask for a nice romantic candle lit dinner, diamonds, vacation or clothes.

    My wish for my birthday celebration was to go hike Cucamonga Peak with my man. This was a 16+ mile hike (was suppose to be 11.6) that is #2 in our Six Pack of Peak Challenge with 4,300 feet of vertical gain and a top elevation of 8,859′. it says it is about 4 miles to the notch. It is 5 miles to the notch and then 3.3 to the peak. You will pas two signs for Ice House Canyon trail and that is once you are already 1 mile in. One says 3 miles the other is 4.7 and both end at the notch. Then the sign for the peak says 2.4 and it is 3.3. We both had our GPS and both came out almost exactly the same.
    There is a few small patches of snow on the trial but no spikes required right now.
    We conquered it. My feet hurt, legs are sore and slept 10.5 hours last night so I was super tired but we had such an amazing time.
    These are the things that make me the happiest. Spending time with the ones I love, pushing yourself to the limit and being outside in all of Mother Natures beauty.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed Reef Bay Trail

    about 1 year ago

    This was a very easy trail down to the beach and back. You can hike over the rocks and go to a private beach and snorkel. The trail ends at a Rum Still and it is pretty cool. There are many little trails off of Reef bay to run off to. You can most definitely make a nice day of all of these little ones. Trails is maintained and the big huge things that look like massive bee hives are actually termites. You will see them all over and they are harmless.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed Black Star Canyon Trail

    this trail was so much fun. going up is just a fire road but once you get up there you can hike off to the tops have some lunch and then the real fun and adventure begins. You can climb down the waterfall. It was super scary and I had to jump a few times and he had to catch me. Crawl through rocks, slide down wet ones on your butt, get super muddy and wet, traverse along the sides of the billy goat trails and slide down the loose terrain through the poison oak and back down to the waterfall. It was very crowded at the bottom along the water and lots of accidents. Wear hiking boots not tennies, rocks are wet, muddy and sharp. Saw so many people slipping, falling and split chins, cuts and scrapes. This is not for the beginners if you go the water way. I would not bring kids or dogs. they were there and people were carrying them or turning back after awhile. Not safe for kids, beginners or pets. . If you use the fire road up and back it is easy.

    Dani Lyn Walker reviewed Mount Wilson Trail

    To celebrate New Years 2017 Shawn and I didn't go out partying and drinking. We decided to stay in (drinking too much wine at home) and tackle our first peak for our Six Pack of Peak Challenges for 2017.
    This hike was more than we had thought. 16.6 miles with elevation gain of 4,200. We started at 10:30 am and finished at 6:08 pm. We hiked the last 3 miles with our flashlights. this was one of our most challenging hikes by far and it is suppose to be the easiest of our 6. Needless to say we realized we have some serious training to do to prepare for the next peak.
    Today both of us can barely walk, our calves hurt so bad I could not even get a massage, only shoes that I can put on are slippers, flip flops and barely uggs.
    It was worth every pain. We laughed our butts off and it was a new adventure we got to share together.
    Happy New Years 2017.

    This is an up and back fire road trail. Pretty easy. parking gets full early so go early or a bit later when others are coming out.
