On Sunday, October 25, we will be hiking the legendary 3Ts Trail. This trail summits three separate peaks in the Cucamonga Wilderness – Thunder Mountain, Telegraph Peak and Timber Mountain. This is an advanced hike for our experienced hikers and backpackers – to be eligible for this hike you should have completed multiple 10 mile hikes with the troop, and/or multiple backpack trips. Our hike will begin at the top of the Mt. Baldy Ski Area Chairlift. We will follow the outer edge of the ski area up to Thunder Mountain, then hike the 3Ts Trail over Telegraph Peak and Timber Mountain to Icehouse Saddle, then hike down Icehouse Canyon to the trailhead. The hike will be approximately 10-11 miles, and we will be climbing at least 3000 feet in total elevation. We will be at an altitude of over 8000 feet for most of the hike.
Our adult leaders for this hike will be Mr. Chase, Dr. Snaer, and Mr. Moffat – come on out and hike with your old scoutmasters, before they get too old! Please let one of the leaders know if you would like to go on this hike. We will need an accurate head count for this one, as we will have to arrange carpools and a short car shuttle between the Baldy Ski Area parking lot and the Icehouse Canyon Trailhead.
We will meet at 6:30 a.m. sharp on Sunday morning at the Scout House. Bring your 10 essentials, including plenty of water. Also, everyone will need to bring some money for the chairlift – the fee is $15 for adults, $13 for scouts. We should finish the hike by approximately 3:00 p.m and be home by 4:00.
