What hiking experience do you have? Please list the names of several hikes that you've done.

I am an advanced backpacker but "advanced" is a relative term. I always meet people who are more advanced than I am. My longest backpacking hike was the entire John Muir Trail in 24 days. The total mileage was about 250 miles but the longest daily segment was 16.7 miles with about 4000 ft of elevation gain. The longest day hike I have undertaken is 22 miles on the South Fork trail to San Gorgonio Peak. My hiking speed is medium I think but slower if I'm climbing in high elevation. Other hikes I have done include Skyline (15x in 2015 and 17x in 2016) Mt. San Antonio (Baldy), San Jacinto, San Gorgonio, Langley, Whitney, and Long's Peak in Colorado.


I love backpacking in the local Southern California mountains and in the Sierra's. I would definately be interested in backpacking in other parts of the country or in other countries.

What Larry B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Mt. San Jacinto Hiking Club is very cool!
