Ascent Trip Report

This was a short but excellent hike as we did it later in the afternoon and the sun was getting lower in the sky. As we looked to the west from multiple clear vantage points, we could see the marine layer seeping into the canyons near Lake Arrowhead, Cajon Pass, and the San Gabriel Mtns. We ended up getting a lot of nice photos as a result. The use trail is quite easy to follow and walking through the forest was quite pleasant. Pics
