California San Gabriel Valley - Mt. Williamson & Pallett Mountain

This Hike is led by GWHLA-SGV Ambassador Graciela!

Continuing with the 100 Peaks Section list, this hike will help us bag 2 peaks in the Angeles National Forest. We will start at Islip Saddle and take the PCT up to Mt. Williamson for our first peak. From there we'll continue on the Pleasant View Ridge up to Pallett Mountain. We will return the way we came back to the Islip Saddle parking lot. 

Let's try to carpool the best we can since parking can be limited at the trailhead and as we know, weekend hikes can be busy. Bring your Adventure Pass to park! And be on time. We will leave promptly at 0710. 

Trail Rating: This is a red hike on the GWH scale – It is over 7 miles, and has unmarked trails, may not have signage and has elevation gain of over 2,000 feet

No dogs, kids, or men on this hike please :)

***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***

Please come prepared with plenty of water, snacks/food, and if you get sick at higher altitudes, plan accordingly. We will go as high as 8,244 ft.

This hike is open to experienced hikers with a moderate to fast pace. For the safety of the group it's better if we have a similar pace so we can finish the hike within the allotted time. Thanks for understanding :)

Any updates will be posted on the event thread via the pinned post, and I'll update the event description if anything changes!
