Difficulty: Strenuous. This is a pretty big 12 mile hike to summit this pretty peak.
What happens when you mix “La Cucaracha” and “Vanilla Ice”? Our epic hike up Cucamonga Peak via Icehouse Canyon obviously!!!!!! Come join Brian, Shawn & Perry up this SoCal Classic offering amazing views over Southern California’s Inland Empire, east toward Apple Valley and beyond. This hike from Icehouse Canyon is a strenuous 11.6 mile out-and-back route with 4,300 feet of vertical gain and a top elevation of 8,859′ so get stoked for a challenge. And to top it off, we’ll be rewarding our hard work with some delicious grub most likely of the Mexican Cuisine.
