Ascent Trip Report

Did this one with my son, Aidan, and his brother & sister, Ian & Kayla. It is a pretty easy hike except for the loose, steep part above the mine before gaining the west ridge. It was still pretty hot for the season. We should have picked a higher mountain near Big Bear. Oh well, we drank all the water just as we arrived back at the trailhead. Overall, a great hike with amazing views of Lucerne Valley, Johnson Valley, Victorville, and the San Bernardino mountains to the east of Big Bear.
