Come join us for a hike up to Jones Peak, the imposing mount right above Sierra Madre. I am sure many of you have wondered about "the mount" when you drive on the I-210 and looked up at mount with a trail right above Sierra Madre. We will then head down to the Crossover Trail and intersect with Mt. Wilson Trail. We will turn left here and hike to Orchard Camp to visit the 1,500 yrs old oak tree. After some rest, we will hike down Mt. Wilson Trail to Sierra Madre, then walk about 3/4 miles along the street to get back to our cars.
View from the top of Jones Peak looking down on Sierra Madra.
Parking: The parking lot and along the street is free. No need for adventure pass.
Note: On the way back down, if the whole group is up to it, I can lead and take a little detour through the original Mt. Wilson trail cutting through to First Water.

Safety is a priority for everyone in the group. The function of the event organizer is only to organize the event and I assume absolutely no responsibility for you/your guests. All participants take full responsibility for their own actions. If you choose to sign up for any LAAPGSM Meetup event, you are releasing the LAAPGSM Meetup Group and it's organizers from all liability arising from your and your guest's participation in the group activities. Your personal safety depends on your own judgment and experience.
