Does anyone have any suggestions for any longer day hikes? I really enjoyed Granite, Villager as well as Whale Peak and the Goat Trestle.

6582

All depend on time of year and how much you want to suffer.

My favorite: Domelands and the associated slot canyon. I think I have now done this almost as often as borrego palm canyon.

In addition to 6582/Dawn’s, Indian head peak up borrego palm canyon and down the scramble, cougar canyon, sheep canyon, rabbit, maiddnhair Falls (looks so out of place).

Day challenge: Trans Anza traverse is a day. I think I posted route info from my trip 2 years ago.

Maybe hard for a day, Indian canyon to borrego palm canyon traverse. When I did this last (3 years ago) we got whooped at the confluence (0.5 miles/hr for over 1 mile). Good thing I planned it for 2 days.

I did Coyote canyon toward Anza this year and did not like it as much as the ones listed above.

Red Top / Sawtooth Highpoint from North Indian Canyon. 12+ hours.

San Ysidro East.

Mile High Mountain.

Another vote for Indianhead.

Square Top. Not really that long, but you'll need to drag a rope up for the summit block.

All of the suggestions are very good. Many are much tougher then Granite, Villager, or Whale.

Bring a headlamp for some. Be careful of the reports, the type of people who dayhike these are often faster than normal.


Also add:
Palm Mesa (via Henderson Canyon, BPC, or Los Coyotes)
Rosa and Pyramid(separately or can be combined with Mile High, Villager)

Sawtooth and Red Top can be done in <12 hours from Indian Canyon Big Grin

Don't forget Coyote peak next to Clark lake. Can be made into a fun day hike. Come up the east side and loop around to the north and back. Sections of the PCT near Granite mountain are fun. Also if you don't mind waiting till the snow melt and heading north a little bit, San Jacinto, San Gorgonio are some of my favorite day hikes.

Thanks. I want to do Coyote-that seems like an interesting route.

Have you done Gorgonio? I am planning that for the next couple of months.



Yes, multiple times. From the South and the North hiking trail heads. Always wanted to do the West route up 10,000 ft ridge and on to the summit. Camped at the summit once. Lots of rock wind shelters. I would suggest the North side first. Just more interesting than the South side uphill grind. It is the highest summit around. Great views on a clear day. Best after a East wind event. Have fun!

For San G, I prefer the Fish Creek Route over the Vivian route and not only because the knees have gotten old with lots of miles. Fish creek may be more miles and take a bit longer but I find it to be easier and I like the route better. Not sure if the road to fish creek is open yet.

Water secret spot: the mine on a good snow year like this one is likely to have water (snow) into July or August. It is maybe 100 yards off trail.

Vivian creek is harder for sure but clears of snow pack earlier in the year. There is a really neat waterfall about half way up or so on the east side of the trail. Hiking up the back side ( north side) is more fun as DHeuschele says. There are some plane wrecks on the east side of the mountain as you near the summit. The north side climb is my favorite also.
