I headed up into the San Gabriel mountains for a solo trip in the Cucamonga wilderness. My plan was to stay overnight on the top of Telegraph peak! I started at the Icehouse canyon trailhead and hiked up the canyon to Icehouse saddle. From the saddle I headed north on the Three T's trail. I climbed up and over Timber mountain and then made the final climb up to the summit of Telegraph peak. The views were amazing in every direction. Mt. Baldy to the north, the Cajon pass and the High Desert to the east, the Cucamonga wilderness to the south, and San Antonio canyon and the San Gabriel valley out to the west. I found a nice sandy spot right near the summit to lay my mat and sleeping bag. Then I made some dinner, and enjoyed a really spectacular sunset. The next morning I packed up and went down the north side of the peak on the Three T's trail and then dropped off the trail cross country into Cedar canyon. I headed down the canyon to the Cedar Glen camp where I met up with the Chapman trail. I took the Chapman trail back down into Icehouse canyon and then headed down the Icehouse canyon trail back to the trailhead.
