Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page


About Your Experience:

"This challenge was bittersweet--as I got my last peak (Baldy), both of the other peaks are under fire closures.  It made me feel really fortunate I got in time on the trails when I did."

Challenge Highlight:

"Doing San Jacinto via Marion Mountain--it's been years since I took that route.  I forgot how beautiful (and challenging!) it is."

Favorite Gear:

"Osprey chest pack for ease of accessing maps, snacks, etc."
