THIS IS A STRENUOUS BACKPACKING TRIP CULMINATING AT THE SUMMIT OF SAN GORGONIO WHERE WE WILL MEET UP (no pun intended) WITH RICH'S GROUP. SINCE WE ONLY HAVE PERMIT FOR 12, THERE WILL BE A MANUAL WAITING LIST. PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE GOING, SO THAT YOU DO NOT TAKE UP A SPACE FOR SOMEONE WHO REALLY WANTS TO GO.
Join us on this 3 day 2 night backpacking trip. We will start at South Fork then hike to High Meadow Springs Camp, 8.1 miles. where we will set up camp. The camp is at 10,400 ft. If you are not accustomed to altitude, this may not be the hike for you. On Sunday morning, we will make our ascent to the summit of San Gorgonio, where we will spend the nigh. We will come down the mountain on Monday.
Bring: YOU MUST BE FULLY GEARED FOR BACKPACKING IN ORDER TO ATTEND THIS TRIP. THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER BACKPACKING TRIP! You should also carry your ten essentials. There is water at the camp.
