Ontario Elevation: 8,696 ft
Bighorn Elevation: 8,441 ft
Total Elevation gain: 4,186 ft
Total Distance: 16.15 miles

Great hike up Icehouse to Ontario Peak, with a slight detour to Bighorn Peak on the way back.  Descended via Chapman Trail; a sketchy first 2 miles on an exposed narrow trail with loose rock and steep dropoffs, but eventual gentle downgrade through manzanita and tamer footing. Santiago Peak, you’re next!
