• Let's Hike Potato Mountain!

    Potato Mountain Trailhead

    We will meet at the trail head at 5:45 pm and start the hiking promptly at 6:00 pm following a 15 minute social. We begin at Evey Canyon entrance by side stepping the locked vehicle gate. We hike through the beautiful oaks and greenery of Evey Canyon Trail. It is possible we may hear the water run through the nearby stream to our right of the trail. About a 1 ½ miles into the hike we reach an intersection leading to the Claremont Wilderness trail to the right or Potato Mountain to the left. We will take a short break at this point and wait for the entire group to catch up. On this hike we turn left and hike up to Potato Mountain. On a clear day we will have great views of Mt. Baldy and the nearby peaks as we ascend. Once atop Potato Mountain we can view the Saddleback, San Gorgonio and San Jacinto Mountains as well. We will be hiking 5 miles round trip with 1200 feet in elevation climb. Potato Mountain sits at 3422 feet of elevation. We will wait for all to make it up to the top and take a short break to enjoy a well-deserved snack. Then we begin our descent down. Once at the intersection we will wait for the group to catch up and make the correct turn to the Evey Canyon Trail back to our cars. Level: Advanced Beginner-Moderate. This is a good hike for an advanced beginner to earn points toward their moderate hiking badge. The trail is very wide, in good shape and is mostly dirt with very few rocks to step on. If hiking this trail is too difficult for your level at this time it is OK. Turn back anytime, you can always try it again and improve next time. It is very easy to turn back and follow the trail back to the locked vehicle gate then to your car. Dogs are allowed as long as they are on leashes. Parking is located on both sides of Baldy Road and is free. No Adventure Pass is required. You are not deep enough into the forest to require an Adventure Pass.

  • Hiking Fresno Canyon - off Green River in Corona

    Green River Promenade

    Fresno Canyon Trail After learning that Fresno Canyon is actually City of Corona property, we did some exploring. It is a well-kept trail that leads from Green River up to the Cleveland National Forest. We worked with the City to get this officially designated as a trail and replaced the Private Property/No Trespassing signs with legit trail head signage! The hike is a more strenuous than the fire road at Skyline, but not too bad. If you go far enough up the trail (a few miles) it gets very steep and challenging. For our Monday conditioning hike we will hike for an hour, take a 10 minute break, and then return the way we came. Because it is steeper the distance will not be too great, but it will still be a nice workout. Due to the earlier sunsets it would be a good idea to bring a headlamp or flashlight. WHAT TO BRING: • Shoes with good traction • Water • Sunscreen • Light snack • Trekking Poles (if you use them) • FLASHLIGHT and/or HEADLAMP! AFTER THE HIKE: There is a little pizza place called Big Al's where we park, so after the hike we will grab a slice before heading home. This bit is optional, but it is always fun!
