Venue Overview:

Mount Islip (pronounced "eye-slip") is one of the frequently visited peaks of the San Gabriels Mountains. From its 8250-foot summit, hikers are rewarded with a majestic 360 degree panoramic view. The pointed and nearly bald summit stands in relative isolation along the high-country backbone, separating the Crystal Lake basin on the south from the vast Mojave Desert to the north.

If you have prior medical condition or a family history of illnesses pertaining to heart, lungs, brain, etc. that can be aggravated by heat and physical exertion, this is not the hike for you.

If you have never done a hike of this distance or difficulty before, this hike will be very difficult for you. It may well be your death march. The mountain is not going anywhere. We will schedule this event again in the future. Do it when your mind and body are ready.
