O: Buckhorn to Burkhart Saddle & Will Thrall Peak (7,848'): Moderately strenuous stroll through mature forest down into a couple canyons whose creeks should be splashing through the woods, then up to Burkhart Saddle for a great view of the Mojave Desert. From here, climb up to seldom-visited Will Thrall Peak (may include brief off-trail scrambling). Hike is about 12 miles and 3,100 feet gain, and will go at a moderate pace. Wear sturdy shoes or lug-sole boots and bring the usuals for a day hike, including lunch and at least two quarts of water. Leader: Mark Mitchell, Co-Ldr: Dean Wallraff. Meet by 8:00 AM at La Canada Ride Share - Angeles Crest Highway (Hwy 2), Just N of Foothill Fwy (I-210). Cars parked in Angeles National Forest will need to display Adventure Passes.
This is a Sierra Club Wilderness Adventures Section hike for which you will have to sign a waiver on the day of the hike to participate.
