Hiked 3/5/18 After a fresh snowfall I decided to do this trail. However I did this as a loop. Ascending the Islip Ridge trail, and then descended via Windy Gap Trail (which I highly recommend). I can’t say for sure how strenuous this is without snow, but it was pretty intense as this was my first real snow hike. Poles and Crampons were a definite must as the last couple miles were completely covered. The views were amazing and the sky was so clear I could see all the way past Catalina to San Clemente!

Hiked the loop clockwise this year on Super Bowl Sunday. Started at 6:30 and did not see a single person the entire day, very rare for these mountains. A few icy snow patches south of Windy Gap but not an issue. Hiked to Mt. Hawkins before heading back and down the ridge to bag the other peaks. nice day!

Beautiful day in the San Gabriels - in addition to doing the loop and summiting South Hawkins, Sadie Hawkins, and Middle Hawkins, we also hiked over to Hawkins and Throop Peaks. 16 awesome miles of trail therapy. Trail conditions were great. The only drawback was no clear trail signage for Sadie Hawkins or Middle Hawkins. All in all, a great day.

Made it to the top 1 week ago. There's plenty of shade until you get to the top of the mountain, then another two miles to the end. The trail is not easy to follow 5 miles into the hike, sometimes found yourself rock climbing just to follow the path. Overall, there were some advantage points with breathtaking views. The view is rewarding way to end the hike

I get the tracking data from my friend in our group. It is 13.5 miles. Definitely more than the 11.1 miles stated in the description

I took the reverse of the route listed above. I went to So Mt Hawkins via the Mt Hawkins Fire Road (the sign indicates 4.8 miles). Coming back I used the Hawkins Ridge Trail and PCT to Windy Gap. Then descend to campground (2.5 miles). I think this is a easier route because the fire road is a gradual ascent while going up to Windy Gap is relatively steep ascent. I think the distance is more than 11.1 mile.
