This is a nice but difficult hike. The climb to the saddle is singletrack and gains elevation quickly.

Hiking poles and your ten essentials are recommended when traveling in early spring since there's still snow along the way.

I reached this peak while hiking down from Mt. San Antonio so it was a downhill hike. From San Antonio you travel along the Devils Backbone ridge which is pretty spectacular. The North side is straight down with great views. The view of the Valley to the south is spectacular as well.

Break up the hikes into 4 parts or more, and it makes it feel easier to complete, and it's so gorgeous! The first mountain I've ever hiked, and it made me fall in love with hiking

On February 16th my wife and I took the ski lift up and them hiked back down off the mountain due to a late start. There were amazing views and we had a great time. My only advise is give yourself a full day to enjoy it all!

Ice House Canyon Trail

I just hiked this trail today and really enjoyed it. The terrain is beautiful and it was a good day for hiking. The trail is overall pretty good. I happened to encounter some Rangers who were inspecting some areas of it. Namely the area around the creek bed was lately partially washed out in the recent rains. Going up it was easier than I returned and I actually lost the trail for a short time at this spot. But overall things were good.

Ice House Canyon Saddle is a great place to hike to other areas. There are a few peaks and trails in the area. It really is a great range of possibilities. There is water along the way but for a day hiker like me I just ported in my own. Lots of shade but take a hat in case.

From the Ski Lift Parking Lot, we were looking at around 13 miles. So we decided to cheat a bit, and too the ski lift up, and walked it all the way back. It cut out a couple miles of uphill hiking. Just an FYI and an option.

otherwise known as Devils Backbone. visually stunning and at some places you are walking on 18" wide trail with 3000' dropsnon both sides.
