I was thinking of hiking El Cajon Peak this Sat 01/08/2011, anyone interested in joining in on the fun? Last time I hiked it was during the summer and it was 108 degrees on my truck gauge in the parking lot, can't say it was all that fun so I would like to go again in the cool weather.

If you are not familiar with El Cajon Peak here is a link to checkout:

I also just saw this but I am afraid I wont be going:

I was able to get out today and hike it. It is hard even on a cool day (I was wearing my 50lb pack fully loaded though).

Looks like a great hike? How long did it take? I've looked up that way many times but never knew there was a trail going up there. Good pics on your site too.

It was a 6 hour hike both times I did it. The first was in the heat and the second was with a heavy pack so I guess they balanced out. It is a tough hike for sure, I just wish it had been more sunny yesterday. The pics are from (my) new camera. I bought used dslr after christmas. Andy motivated me to finally buy something that will allow me to take higher quality photos, now I just need to learn how to use it.

You need to write up a TR of where you went with your new lights.

Nice pictures! My brother, his co-worker and myself did that hike a few years back. The co-worker quit half way up due to foot blisters. Been there done that!
It is an awesome view from the top on a clear day as I remember. We never did hike down from the peak to the "drop off" to the south where all the folks
get into trouble with the life flight helecopter thing. That wildcat canyon road is crazy.

The "edge" aka El Cap was on my agenda but I got a late start and did not want to risk having the parking lot gate locked on me. I am totally up for another trip out to try and get there. Anyone else..??
