Great news! I love the quick hike up Bedford peak.

Nice.  I was thinking the same thing as Scottawr:  Bedford is a great training hike.

It's also great that the road is open. I want to explore some areas off north main divide. For OC hikers, it was always an easy to access, fun area. I hate fires that shut down large areas of the forest for years, but it seems that's the way it goes.

Bedford Peak

Yes, Bedford is a great training hike. The next time anyone is there be sure to walk to the far eastern end of the summit area. Someone placed a memorial bench there. It is a great spot to sit, eat lunch, and view Santiago Peak.

I went up with uber hiker Joycie this past Saturday.

It looks a little denuded compared to the opposite hillside, but chaparral grows back quickly.

Tip:  Don't go on a hot day.  Ain't no shade nohow nowhere.
