Peak San Gorgonio

Trailhead Vivian Creek

The hike did not go according to plan. Me and my friend brought all the ten essentials. Unfortunately (dun dun dunnnnn) we began the hike at 7:50 in the morning and summited by 12:50. The high for the day was 52 degrees and when we began the hike it was 38 degrees. While at the summit a cloud layer began to rise and we began our descent at 1:45 PM. Unfortunately, we missed the Vivian Creek trailhead and began to head down South Fork. We took South for almost a mile and a half before we realized our mistake and had to hike back up. By this time it was 3:30 and we had another 8 miles to go. We reassessed our gear and supplies and headed down. By 7 PM we still had a mile to go and it became nightfall. To our benefit, we brought our flashlights, but the 18 mile hike became 21. It was a very interesting way to end the series to say the least…
