I am planning on hiking these 2 peaks soon. Anyone know if the road is open to drive to them from the I-15. Anyone aware of alternative (aka more interesting) routes? It looks like it would be a good hike to Buck Point from Icehouse Canyon over Etiwanda Peak.

I still want to hike these peaks. There is a trip report on summitpost.

Here is the route I am now thinking, it was mentioned in the HPS route page. Trailhead from the north end of Etiwanda Ave.

I take it that road is non-accessible? The one running to SS Lookout?

I checked about a month or so ago and the road was gated.  I've been eyeing that ridge for quite a while when driving by and it looks doable.
I've also considered just hiking up the dirt road and tagging the two, but that's no fun!  Let me know if you want company in trying out that ridge.

I checked it out on google earth, the ridge looks brush free (looks like the firebreak is in good condition). Check out the track (this will open in Google Earth).

i gathered all the info together and put it up on my website:

http://www.gpsmountaineering.com/buckpointandsanservainelookout

i am hoping to do this hike next sunday, Jan. 20th.

i estimate that to hike to both Buck Point and San Servaine Lookout it would be 16.5 miles and 5500 ft elev. gain, maybe a little less if I can drive further up the dirt road.

let me know if you are interested in joining us,

Travis,
Here's a pic of the ridge:


There's a gate right where your map starts.
I would like to join with you guys, what time would you plan on starting?  I'm considering tagging Etiwanda as well since after all it's right there(kinda).  Smile
But that's going to require an early start and add ~10 miles and bring the elevation gain closer to 9000ft. Plus the snow!  hhhmmmm....

We are going ahead on this hike this Sunday, 1/20/08. We will start hiking at the north end of Etiwanda Ave (at the gate) around 7 am ish (more likely 7:30). Anyone is welcome to join us, we will be hiking at a fast pace.

Did a very similar "route finding" hike a few years ago off of etiwanda ave adnd then up to the road to Big Tree and then over Etiwanda to Cucamonga and shuttled over to Ice House.  Some interesting route finding but very doable  ---- wear long pants some of that brush gets quite thick.
