Get hyped for a kinda’ early, pretty challenging but EXTREMELY rewarding hike to the top of Mt. San Jacinto. We’ll be taking the less-travelled Marion Mountain Trail route from the west with ~4500 ft of elevation again over 7 miles (14 mi round-trip). Enjoy a stunning panorama with a clear view of Joshua Tree and the San Gorgonio Mountains!
BONUS: Bragging rights for having one of the six-packs under your belt.
