Inland Empire - Ice House Canyon

Hey ladies! Here we are again attempting this hike again! :) I know so many of you were looking forward to this hike, so hopefully you can make this one!

Are you new at bagging peaks and don’t know where to start? Have you never hiked in elevation and don’t want to go alone? This hike is a perfect starting hike to elevation and to train for the 6pack of peaks!!

I know there has been A LOT of interest as of late over the 6pack of peaks, plus a LOT of hesitation because they are such big peaks to tackle! So I wanted to target those individuals who may be unsure about their pace or conditioning so that we can do it together! This was my first “mountain hike” ever and would love to share it with everyone! With that being said, ALL levels are welcome! So please do not hesitate to join, but just be prepared for a possibly slower pace as we will be hiking as a group. 

Note: this is the same hike to get to cucamonga peak, but we are NOT summiting. We are only reaching the saddle and turning around, so please reserve a ticket only if you’re going to stay with the group.

This event is hosted by Girls Who Hike Inland Empire Ambassador Naomy!
