Comeprepare forFather's Day like a real man (or woman), and join me on this tough, strenuous hike in the Cucamonga Wilderness. We will be attempting to bag two 8,500 ft.+ peaks over a total distance of about 15 miles. The net elevation gain will beover 4,000 ft. This is not a hike for beginners.

Plan ona hike of about8 to 9 hours. Bring a lunch, snacks, and a minimum 3 liters of water (I will be carrying at least 4).

We will do this as an out-and-back hike beginning at the Icehouse Canyon trailhead. If you aren't quite ready for a 14-mile hike yet or if you need to get home early, you will have the option of turning around at Cucamonga Peak (12-mile roundtrip) or the Ice House Saddle (7-mile roundtrip).

In addition to the challenge, this hike also offers some great scenery. The initial climb through steep, but shaded, Ice House Canyon is always a treat. The views from Etiwanda and Cucamonga (the easternmost peak in the San Gabriels) are unsurpassed.

For those of you doing Whitney or Half Dome this summer, please try to make this hike. It's a good way to kick start your training.

Whether you're a father, mother, daughter, or son, I hope to see you on the trail.

Be well and THRIVE!

Dennis
