Hiking to Mammoth’s Fern Lake
A Sunset Hike on Mount Williamson
Mount Williamson is a relatively short hike, but if you want easy access to the San Gabriel high country and some amazing views along the way, then you would be hard pressed to find a better trail.
Hiking the Baldy Ski Hut trail after a snowstorm
The Mount Baldy Ski Hut trail is one of the most scenic trails in the San Gabriel Mountains. After a snowstorm, it gets even better and provides a great opportunity for hikers to experience winter in Southern California.
Hiking Crystal Lake to Mount Hawkins and South Mount Hawkins
A day of solitude surrounded by miles of untouched wilderness and snow capped peaks, all contained in a Sunday hike in LA’s backyard. Even I didn’t think that was possible.
Hiking the North Fork of Big Pine
This trip was the two year anniversary of Callie’s first backpacking trip and the launch of CaliTrails. We celebrated the occasion by taking our first backpacking trip of the year on one of the Sierra’s best dog friendly trails.
Angelus Oaks to San Bernardino Peak
The Sierra season is quickly approaching, so Callie and I took advantage of one last opportunity to get a big training hike in before the summer’s adventures begin. Our destination this time was the San Bernardino Peak trail, a first for both of us but definitely not our last. With gorgeous open views and very few hikers to contend with, this is a fantastic trail to hike with your dog.
The Devils Slide Trail to the Tahquitz Peak Lookout
Don’t let the name fool you, the Devils Slide Trail is a heavenly slice of Southern California hiking.
Fall Color at Mcgee Creek
Mcgee Creek is one of our favorite spots in the Eastern Sierra for fall color. Most people avoid the area because the best views require you to hike and explore a bit. With Callie in tow, that is a requirement for us, so Mcgee Creek is a perfect fit.
North Lake to Lower Lamarck and Wonder Lakes
The Wonder Lakes near Bishop lie in a bucolic offtrail Sierra basin with easy weekend access. Quite wonderful indeed.
Pinecrest Gate to Eaton Canyon Falls
I took my son on his first hike to the waterfall in Eaton Canyon – a classic Southern California hike that I’d never been on either.
