    Mt. Wilson did not have snow, but supposedly it's not allowed. Did it anyways. Strawberry Peak might have a little snow, but it shouldn't be that bad. It's not too far in distance from Wilson, and about the same altitude.

    Never hiked it, but I think Sitton Peak near Lake Elsinore is clear.

    Other than that, Mt. Lowe is not one of the peaks, but it's a fun hike. You learn lots of history on that hike. And you can combine it with Echo Mountain.

    San Gabriel peak, which has one of the best westerly views and is also not on the peak list, should be in a similar situation as Wilson and Strawberry. Although the access trail is a north facing, so there still may be snow there. You can reach it from the Red Box parking lot just like Strawberry.

    Bridge to Nowhere and Tunnels to nowhere aren't real tough hikes, they are relatively flat. But the Bridge goes along the river. That's pretty much my home when I'm not hiking up stuff.
