Homepage Forums Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge™ Q&A San Bernardino Peak anyone?

  • San Bernardino Peak anyone?

    Posted by VERONICA on June 21, 2020 at 10:12 am

    I’m fairly new to hiking and decided to sign up for the SoCal Challenge because I’ll be hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro in February for my birthday. I completed Cucamonga Peak and Mt. Baldy this week. I would like to hike San Bernardino Peak next, but don’t know anyone willing. Are there any organized groups within this network? I’ve tried joining hiking groups in my area, but their focus isn’t hiking high elevations. My fear is that I’ll get lost in the wilderness 🙂 Below is me at Mt. Baldy summit. I made a wrong turn somewhere heading down and ended up a few miles from my intended end point. Sunglasses

    Hello Veronica, if you happen to have Facebook there’s a group called SoCal hikers. You will be able to find hiking parters by posted that you’re looking for hiking buddy. .

    Hi Josette…Welcome…I finally hiked San Bernardino Peak yesterday. Perhaps we can meet up for a future hike. Good luck! ⛰????

    Welcome Christine….I did San Jacinto and was planning to do San Gorgonio today, but due to the “Apple Fire” in the area, decided against it. It's zero percent contained and I'm sure the air quality is not ideal for hiking.
