Rich McGuire: 3-DAY FINISHER 2018 3-Peak Challenge


Back to the 3-Peak Challenge Finishers Page


About Your Experience:

"Did the all trail version (no tram) taking the Devils Slide Trail up San Jacinto. Started with a Boy Scout group of 16, but only 5 of us went on. Went from Saddle Juction Saturday to the San Jacinto Peak, down off the mountain and up a mile and a half on the Vivian Creek trail. Peaked San Gorgonio on Sunday and all the way down, still a long day. Memorial Day went up Ski Hut trail to peak Baldy, but chose Devils Backbone to go down so we could eat at the Top of the Notch and get a cold drink since it was so hot. The high was 45 degrees when we started and 80 degrees when we finished!"

Challenge Highlight:

"Had to be the Top of the Notch, didn't have to carry lunch or much water up Baldy, and could get a Burger and ICE cold drinks or beer."
