We will be parking in a turnout along the Sunset Highway. First we will explore the Sundown Mine area and search for any remains, then climb up to Garnet Peak. Elevation change is only about 1000ft. Pretty straight forward hike.

    Sorry I missed this, was hiking through Painted gorge and climbing to the top of Carrizo Mountain on Saturday. Judging by the winds down there must have been howling up at Garnet Peak.

      I'll meet you at Starbucks. Going through the back roads vs going through San Diego takes the same amount of time from here. So I'll just ride with you guys.

    I've been avoiding RSVP'ing for any mine trips, though not for lack of interest, since most recommend harness/rope gear which I don't have and it's been years since I've rappelled - I notice you don't have those things listed this time - are they still recommended or is that not going to be included this trip?

      This trip will not include any ropework. We're just exploring an old mine claim, looking for any historic remains. There may be nothing. Mine hunting be a little mundane in that regard..

      Will not be able to make it the 3rd. Have fun at the Sundown. Been trough the area before didn't see any shafts though there may be some in the area.
