Loved this hike! Like many others have said you really have to watch for the actual trail. It's right before the small parking area. If you pass the gate on the paved fire road you've gone too far. You can reach both peaks either way though. The fire road is longer and completely paved where as the trail cuts through the forest. I recommend the trail over the road.

After a couple miles on the trail you'll come back out on the fire road. About 1/4 mile past that and you'll find the final trail to San Gabriel Peak on the left. There is a pole but it isnt labeled besides some graffiti. The summit is totally worth it! I skipped Mt Disappointment this time but if you wanna bag 2 peaks go for it!
