PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION PRIOR TO SIGNING UP!
*BACKPACKING EVENT* This is an overnight trip staying at Limberpine Bench Camp (9200'). Parking at the trailhead gets crowded! I recommend carpooling. The San Bernardino Trail is 6 MILES and 3K gain to camp. We will set-up camp, continue to Limber Springs for water and ascend the three miles to San Bernardino East (10690'). After a short break, we will return the same route one mile to San Bernardino Peak (10650'). Once descending we will stop by Washington Monument for a photo op, before returning to camp for the night.
We will depart camp SUNDAY morning about 9am and be back to the parking lot by 12-1pm.
ALL TEN ESSENTIALS and backpacking gear are required! This includes a bear canister. I RECOMMEND USING A WATER FILTER AT LIMBER SPRING.
