South Hawkins (LO)

28 April 1990

By: Bikecat Thompson

Leaders: Bob Thompson, Arthur Schain

The "Magnificent Seven" Bike & Hikers and one 4-legged runner met at 8am, at Azusa carpool point. We caravaned up to Crystal Lake Campground where we obtained free parking, and began mountain biking up the fire road at the East end of the campground at 9am.

Up the road we biked on a beautiful Spring day and a gradual elevation gain, past Deer Flat group campground. We met Charlie Jones and his trail builders heading for a day of trail building from Mt. Islip down the ridge back to Crystal Lake. Everyone reached the summit of So. Mt. Hawkins via the 10 mile fire road by 11:30am. There were a couple of minor mechanical difficulties. We enjoyed an hour lounging like lizards atop this fine peak with great views and had a nice lunch.

We all then had a great run back down the road and to Crystal Lake Campground by 2pm. Thanks to Arthur Schain for a good assist, and to the participants who enjoy hiking and biking together: Alan Cacconi, Madeline Riepe, Jim Riepe, Cedar Riepe, Sandy "Bluebird" Houston & Mike "Roadrunner" Baldwin.
