Most likely my next hike will be Iron Mountain again, some friends and I have been talking about going. You can see quite far over San Diego county from the top.
    DUDE! I love Iron Mountain. I was just up there last week. Such a blast. There's so many little nooks and crannies in that park to go exploring. And a lot of great views from the top.

    My favorite San Diego mountain to hike though for views is just up the street from me... Black Mountain in Rancho Penasquitos. It's only like 1,500' elevation but it's really isolated so the views around it are incredible, you can see Mount Baldy in LA and you can see downtown San Diego and Tijuana and the Coronado islands and San Clemente Island on a clear day. It's crazy and it's only about a 30 minute hike to the top.

    I want to hike up to the top of Saddleback Mountain in Orange County this summer. Anyone ever done it before? I'm sad that I still haven't... I would think the view from up there would be quite panoramic.

    pancakes, have you done Cowles Mountain yet? Highest peak in the city. Beautiful 360 views from up there, too.

    Cowles Mountain is great - so peaceful and quiet at the top. Sometimes there are a ton of people on the trail, but it's always been pretty deserted once I've reached the top.

    yeah, I've done it several times, it's very close to me...if it's clear, it's a very cool view

    summer time is pretty hot, the trail is exposed to sunlight most of the way

    I just watched Grizzly Man for about the 10th time a couple nights ago, apparently you're supposed to crawl up to Grizzlies and smack them on the nose, they seem to really like it...I never knew that before watching that doc, interesting fact.

    Outside of Mammoth - 1.5 mile hike to Crystal Lake.

    Izzy was a champ and hiked the whole way up, but I had to carry her 45 lbs. down. Awesome!

    Yeah, it's a short hike so perfect for families and dogs. The water was freezing.

    That's what I was guessing, that's usually not my favorite type of hike, as I like to get away from people while hiking....but I need to find a couple really cool short hikes to help get my 13 1/2 year old daughter into it. She's athletic and perfectly capable, but nothing around OC has captured her interest yet. She really loves the outdoors once out in it, but she's not interested in putting in any work to get there! I know part of it is just the age, so hopefully a little more time will help too.

    Looks like fun, I've jumped in water that is snowmelt and it's cold, I tried to walk across Pinecrest lake on logs that were tied together across, fell in and almost got Hypothermia...

    The thing that sucks about hiking in the OC is that you never really feel like you get away from the suburban sprawl.

    This guy jumped in swam across and then hiked up some rocks and dove. It was awesome, but my husband and friend, Andrew in the picture on bottom with Izzy, were reluctantly ready to dive in and save his ass. You can't shake those life guarding instincts.

    That looks lovely algunz, the snowpack there is pretty incredible too.

    We're going up to the Mammoth-ish area in a couple weekends for a few days, going to be a really relaxing kind of camping trip with just some short day hikes. We're doing three nights at the Rock Creek Campground, I think it is, just south of Lake Crowley. I'm missing Underworld at HARD for it... so I'm hoping it's a great trip?
