perfect for a quick little get away

Headed up to do Cucamonga Peak but the ice and snow made the idea of the icy descent seemed like asking for a broken body part. So....headed back on the tough rocky narrow Chapman Trail. Can't wait to summit Cucamonga but need spikes and poles....headed back soon!

Enjoyed this hike, though there was a ton of snow at the Saddle and we were unable to move on to Cucamonga peak. Streams make the trail very pretty in the beginning.

Great cool hike. Snow on trail in a few spots. Cold at the saddle

Hiked this trail summer 2016, its one of my all time favorites especially when the water is flowing. Planning to hike this trail again as soon as the ice melts.

Pretty easy hike relaxing

Great hike easy beautiful view
Kid friendly my four year old did it without promble
It is cold
And their is some snow

March 16. A lot of snow above 7000 feet. Lost sight of the trail around 6600 feet. Made it to the Saddle junction following footsteps in the snow. It's a very rocky and rugged trail. Definitely take your trekking poles.

I did Chapman trail in an attempt to avoid ice, hoping to get to the Saddle. Too icy for me. I found a Cache does anybody know about these things??? I signed the register and stuck it back where I found it, Awesome hike, cant wait till ice is gone.

Patchy snow starting about a mile from the saddle. The last half mile all snow. Not icy, so footing was good. crampons not needed. Watch out if nighttime temps drop closer to freezing; it will be icy then.

still lots of snow near the saddle. recommend crampons at this point until the snow melts a bit.
