First hike with San J Hiking Club members since my foot surgery! Hoping to see some of my friends on the trail for this momentous occasion. :-)

NOTE: If I haven't hiked with you, an answer to the hiking experience question is REQUIRED as part of your RSVP. Thank you!

Stats to SB Peak: ~16 miles r/t, 4600' elevation gain

Option to addEast SB Peak for another ~2-3 miles (r/t) along the ridgeline, bringing the hike up to the 18-19 mile-ish range, with a modest add'l elevation gain.

If you're interested in the Beer-nardino Peak part, please bring a bottle of a favorite or otherwise interesting beer (chilled, please!) and a cup so we can share in a little toast to a great day in the mountains. Since we'll be at altitude and will still have many miles to go before we sleep, this will just be a few celebratory swigs and maybe a little sampling as part of a typical summit rest/recharge, not a long stop at the peak with a few rounds of drinks. Also, you can definitely participate in the hike without the summit suds.

MY PACE:
I'm a hiker, not a trail runner; if you average 3+ mph, you'll likely be ahead of me. I don't mind, but will not try to keep up with you either. If you hike 2 mph or slower, you'll be behind me. Again, I don't mind, but there will not be a sweep and you may not keep up with most in the group.Either way KNOW THE TRAIL!


DIRECTIONS:
Exit I-10 East on Orange St, following the ramp until Orange St, at which point you make a left. Make a right on Lugonia Ave to follow Highway 38. Remain on Highway 38 through Mentone, past the Mill Creek Ranger Station, and then past Valley of the Falls Drive, where the road while take a sharp switchback to the left. At the village of Angelus Oaks, make a right onto Fir Street at the fire station. Take an immediate left on Frontage Road. Follow that until you make a right onto a forest service road named "1Wo7." This bumpy dirt road will dead-end at the trailhead.

For mapping purposes, use5766 Frontage Rd, Angelus Oaks, CA 92305. Add 5-7 minutes to drive from this address (the Fire Station) to the forest service road and trailhead.

Note there are no "amenities" at this trailhead, which I believe means no Adventure Pass is necessary.

I'm not leading this hike but rather facilitating it. Please come prepared for a long day of hiking at higher altitudes. As noted above, there will not be a sweep. However, it's an out and back hike.

How to find us:look for the woman with red backpack and baseball cap at the trailhead
