Hike #6 - Saddle Up!
Apologies for the late delay on uploading the last blogs……. Our mountains and our schedules suffered from the Springs Fire and unfortunately delayed my work along with other life events. Now I am back to work and on my normal schedule. With that said……. I hope you enjoy the next blogs!
Saddle Peak is also known for its popular geological features and its 360 degree view of its surroundings. On a clear day you can see into the LA Basin and the islands nearby. This peak stands at 2805 feet up. It is only 0.8 miles to get to the spur of the saddle from the trailhead. As you can see our group had a remarkable view of the area.
I am still amazed of what our local mountains have to offer. With each hike I discovered something new, and end it feeling more thankful that we have protected these mountains for all of us to share. So be sure to take advantage of the trails and experience your park……..these mountains are here for you. Until next time!
