San Gabriel Peak Trail is a 3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Mt Wilson, California and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Hiked this on 1/20/17 and thoroughly enjoyed it despite a blizzard with 12" fresh snow. Fortunately, the Mueller Tunnel provided much needed shelter during a massive ice downfall!! I lost my Black Diamond ice axe somewhere near Mt Disappointment Summit or San Gabriel Peak. Appreciate a call if anyone finds it. 859-496-6458
You can also summit San Gabriel Peak from the Mt. Disappointment gate via Mt. Disappointment Road. I did this on July 9 and took the Bill Riley Trail back to the gate.
Great hike for beginners to intermediate. Some shade but mostly exposed to sun. High elevation. Some of the trail gets narrow. Well maintained. Challenging but is a good workout.
The views on a clear day go out to the ocean. So worth it.
No graphity, no trash, very nice trail.
Awesome trail with a great view at the end. Not much shade so bring lots of water.
Gorgeous day! Weather in the morning was in the 50s with a strong wind chill. In and out it took me 3.5 hours. The view from the peak was breathtaking! You could see Downton LA, Burbank, all the way to the ocean! I will definitely be doing this trail again soon in the near future.
