Ice House Canyon is just under 8 miles long and located near Mt Baldy. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes a full day. The Ice House Canyon is a popular day hike with a trail head just north of Mount Baldy Village. The trail is not to strenuous, but if you are hiking in the winter, snow and Ice is a factor. The saddle is the destination for most hikers and views of Mount Baldy and Ontario Peak can be seen. You will follow a stream for almost the first two miles of the hike. There are great little cabins along the way as well. The trail also leads to several other trail, good backpacking and even to Mount Baldy.

Beautiful hike. For this beginner, it was a little too difficult to do the whole thing, but I made it about 3 miles up before tapping out, then enjoyed some hammock time before the much easier task of trekking down.

I actually went all the way to Cucamonga peak I just haven't gotten the hang of this app lol it was my first peak awesome trail it's difficult enough getting to the saddle but from there another 2.6 miles or so to Cucamonga peak really rewarding hike lots of beautiful scenery totally worth the 8 hours it took me to finish round trip I'm a bit slow but I made the extra effort and it paid off
