Got it, class of 2017. It's nice to make it to Hiker Heaven. Another dry section. Watch your water.

We started off of HWY 2 and hiked east, didn't see much for about 2 miles and then hiked back west across under the freeway for about 10 miles. The views were awesome but would recommend the west portion for someone in good shape as it was a lot of climbing. super fun though.

I have not done this whole section but I like the stretch between Guffy Campground and Inspiration Point for altitude training and it's beauty. It's 7000" to 8500", the highest being on the east end but a lot of up and down in between, staying for the most part on Blue Ridge itself or very near it so the views to the north and south are really nice. The oaks and chaparral on the west end quickly give way to open jeffrey/ponderosa forest with white fir and a few cedars. There is NO water between Interstate 15 and Grassy Hollow unless you scramble down the steep Acorn Trail to Wrightwood. Blue Ridge Campground is roughly halfway between Inspiration Point and Guffy. There's only light use in the winter because the gate is locked to vehicle traffic at Inspiration Point until the Mountain High Ski Resort closes down for the season. If you like thin air this is a nice 10 mile out and back. I'm posting a few pics.
