San Gabriel Peak, Mount Disappointment, Mount Deception

7 October 1990

By: Vieve Weldon

Leaders: Vieve Weldon, Mary McMannes

Twenty-one eager hikers started climbing at 8:25 on a bright, sunny, and pleasantly cool morning. The hike began from the Disappointment Road trailhead, 0.4 miles beyond Red Box on the Mt. Wilson Road. By consensus, we agreed to hike up on the trail and down on the road. The trail, which is delightful, was reconstructed by the Jet Propulsion Lab Trailbuilders and opened in 1988. It is in the trees and scenic, and has a steady, comfortable grade. We reached the summit of San Gabriel at 9:40 am, and after spending some time to admire the view, went on to Disappointment, where we were disappointed to find no register. After an exceptionally convivial lunch on top of Deception, we walked down the road and arrived back at our cars at 12:45 pm. The total distance and elapsed time was 7 miles in 4 hours and 20 min
