Our friends, Harry and Carroll, told us about a hike near their home. They have hiked half way up the mountain stopping near a large water tank that is in sight of the summet. We were intrigued, so we planned our trek this week to climb the top of that mountain. We parked our car by their home and walked a mile over to the trailhead.
Instead of risking slipping on the steep section of the trail on the way down, we decided to continue across the top hoping to find another trail going down. Luckily we found a trail that lead us to the way down and added two more miles to our trek. The total hike was seven miles.
This is our last organized hike for this season. Summer is here and temperatures our climbing up to 110 degrees F, way too hot for hiking! We may even start surfing soon on the beach. Well... maybe not surfing, but for sure the paddle board. Looking forward to the summer fun!
FYI: We are curious to know what the name of this little mountain is. It's located near Turtle Drive in Banning. There were no signs at the site and no information on the internet maps. If anyone out there knows, please leave a comment.
