Ontario Peak with Janae

  • This location is shown only to members

Ontario Peak is one of my favorite hiking destinations. Round trip it's about 13 miles and 4,000 feet of elevation gain.  The peak is 8,693 feet and is named for the nearby city of Ontario. It first appeared in the General Land Office Forest Atlas in 1908.It doesn’t look like the weather will be too hot Saturday.  See the link below for the weather at the various elevations. The trail is pretty shady most of the way but after Kelly Camp it is exposed.  http://www.mountain-forecast.com/peaks/Ontario-Peak/forecasts/1000

Bring:  Sturdy shoes, at least 2 liters of water, snacks, lunch, repellant, a hat, poles  if you use them, sunscreen, and your ten essentials. YOU WILL NEED AN ADVENTURE PASS TO PARK AT THE TRAILHEAD.

    Janae, thank you for leading this hike. The early start and higher altitudes made for a nice comfortable cool hike on such a hot day. Gorgeous views with early autumn colors already starting to show. It was nice to meet you and the group :)
