1. Cucamonga Peak
You can go all the way to San Gabriel Mountain and scale one of its highest peaks, the Cucamonga Peak. The hiking trail to the mountain is in the desert and together with the sprawl, and the peaks, make a magnificent view to wake up to from your tent the following morning.
And don’t forget to keep your eyes open for the bighorn sheep. You might get a snap or two to tell tales of your adventure. However, you will need to come packed for the challenges associated with the hiking that awaits you.
Carry some snacks, layers, water and arm yourself with the latest weather report from the ranger’s office. You will also need to fill a hiking permit, but this shouldn’t worry you as it is free and easy.
