Spectacular views! Loop provided great insight into the San Gabriel Mountains. views of Catalina island and Long Beach shipyard. As well as Downtown Los Angeles , and beautiful sightseeing of all the East fork and North fork regions. Not to mention, the peak into the High Desert side of the range. Definitely a hike worthy of tacking.

First to Review

I recently hiked to Throop peak and really enjoyed it so today I decided to hike to Hawkins. We skipped Throop because we ran out of time and I got a little altitude sickness. The trail is well maintained and marked. The only obstacle was a huge fallen tree we had to climb over. If I had my dog with me, he wouldn’t of made it over. The fallen tree is after Throop Peak.
