Mt. Hawkins – June 5, 2010

June 27th, 2012 by

This time right around when I was graduating really felt like a time when I had a lot of chance, desire, and availability to really go outside and check things out. While life had been a bit crazy for the last few months, these were really a chance to just get outside. So, I emailed out to the standard people, and Rashied and Chris were able to come on out with me for a hike. We had to go a bit past some of what was the “general” area I would have gone to, since a lot of the forest was still closed from the Station Fire, but the Angeles Crest Highway was still open, so we were able to head on up to Mt. Hawkins, which is a bit southwest of Islip Saddle. The trip was approximately 9 miles round trip, with 2300′ of gain, but my GPS said there were 3160′ of actual climbing involved.
