Runner Notes

This is a beautiful trail for a run. Loose trail conditions at points.

Description

This is a fantastic way to stretch your run up Icehouse Canyon Trail just a little bit further for some wonderful views and a quiet lunch spot.

This is an open, rocky trail in pine forests with views toward the Cucamonga Wilderness backcountry and toward Mt. Baldy. This trail does continue onward to link up with the Mt. Baldy Summit Loop and other Mt. Baldy trails if you are up for a long day/overnight.

Fun fact - there is a geocache/sign-in book in a little box at the nook of a tree at the summit of Timber Mtn.

Flora & Fauna

There is great bird watching along this trail and the high mesquite/pine clearings are lovely. BEWARE of BEES! There is a beehive in a trunk about 20' uphill of the trail right after you head toward Timber Mtn. from the Icehouse Saddle. They became frenzied during the spring flowering and swarmed the hiker in front of me, who had to be airlifted out. Just keep an eye out, and keep your dog on a leash!
