Quick links: Back to Summit Details

Mt Waterman activation

You can reach the trail head by driving up the 2 from La Canada (Glendale side), past Newcomb\\\'s place. Watch out for the ricky racers on 2 & 4 wheels. Park in the mini lot on the north side of the road. This is the 3rd opportunity to park after reaching the ski lifts. Finding the trail was rather difficult so if you miss it just walk up the GP trail to the west. Took me 2 hours to get on top. At this point in the year the only snow left is decorative. T-Shirt weather. The views are pretty cool. At the summit there are large trees so a dipole would look pretty darn good strung across a couple of them. I tried using a Buddistick with mixed results. Next time a portable wire dipole it is. Bring water and a trash bag. And don\'t forget to check out the paw prints in the mud or snow. I had to gulp hard to imagine a kitty big enough to make those tracks-always stand tall. KJ6VQR
