We'll catch the 10am tram and hike from Long Valley to the San Jacinto Peak. Please arrive early if you need to purchase a tram ticket.
This is a moderate hike, but can be strenuous because of the elevation. The peak is at 10,800 feet. The mileage is about 11 miles round trip with a gain of about 2,500 feet. We'll take the summer route from the tram station to Round Valley and then to Welman's Divide and then on to the peak. The views are breathtaking! Weather conditions to be announced.
Bring at least three liters of water and enough food or bars to keep you going for approximately 6 hours. Wear hiking boots or hiking shoes. It's advisable not to wear cotton.
