About Your Experience:

"I've come to enjoy the 3-Peak Challenge as a great way to usher in the summer hiking season. My husband and I have been doing the 3-week timeframe and backpacking San Jacinto and San Gorgonio the last couple of years, but this year we felt we already had our "trail legs" because we were fortunate to do the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal in April. So we decided to go for the 3-day challenge. It was a great way to experience "old" trails in a new way! It was also fun to do it relatively early in the season and see how different each year is. Last year there was snow lingering into June. This year, none at all, but lots of wildflowers still blooming."

Challenge Highlight:

"We've been having overcast days in So Cal lately, which meant for each hike we got to hike above a blanket of clouds. When we hiked San Gorgonio, the clouds and fog rolled in deeper into the mountains and canyons, and as we were descending we were treated to a magical mix of sunny and foggy weather, with silhouettes of pine and cedar trees coming in and out of focus. Gorgeous!"
