Taking a moment to get out and enjoy nature today! 5 hours, 11.8 miles, climbed 3,000 ft up to the summit at 8,400 ft with @eliseshenry ⛰🌲☀️ We took Windy Gap, Pacific Crest Trail, and Hawkins Ridge Trail. FYI If you’ve never taken Windy Gap....it’s really windy😬💨💨 • • #nature #hike #hiking #angelesnationalforest #southmounthawkins #hikingwithdogs #hikergirl #la #icantfeelmyfingers #thatwindisnojoke #windygap

Amazing hike today with @christine.m.warren to South Mount Hawkins. The Windy Gap trail is no joke and def lives up to its name. 😬❄️💨#southmounthawkins #windygaptrail #pacificcresttrail #silvermoccasintrail #hawkinsridgetrail #sangabrielmountains #hikingwithdogs #womenwhohike #socalhiker
Today is our first wedding anniversary so we went for a family hike out of Crystal Lake. Shasta loves when it’s the three of us on the trail - - #happyanniversary #paperanniversary #familyhike #crystallake #southmounthawkins #dogswhohike #australiancattledog #hundredpeakssection #hotpuppy
Hiked up all the Hawkins today! South Hawkins, Middle Hawkins, Sadie Hawkins, and Mount Hawkins. 😜 My hiking lesson of the day today is about CHANGE. I went on this hike cause I hadn’t hiked most of these peaks yet, but also a few weeks ago I was up in the same area of the mountains the day I hiked in the snow storm. And I just assumed there would be a ton of snow up there today! And there was a little bit...but not at all as much as I expected. The snow melted so fast!! Which brings me to my point. Things can change can quickly, whether we’re ready for it or not. And although it’s human nature to fear change, change is good! Change means new things. So today I accepted the CHANGE. There may not have been the loads of snow I was expecting, but instead I had stunning views literally the entire hike. And you all know I love those views. Embrace the CHANGE. ❤️ ⛰ #changeisgood
3 peaks + 14 miles + 5 great hikers + 2 degrees + 10 hours = 1 great time #rei1440project #optoutside #frozenfive #pct #neverstopexploring #throoppeak #mounthawkins #southmounthawkins 📷 @wanderlust.explore
Yesterday we completed the Hawkins Loop and summited all 4 Hawkins peaks. Starting from crystal lake up to windy gap and along the pct to our first peak (Mount Hawkins 8,850) from there we took the Hawkins ridge trail to our second peak (Middle Mount Hawkins 8,505) back down and on the trail to our third peak (Mount Sadie Hawkins 8,047) One last push to our fourth and final peak of the day (South Mount Hawkins 7,783) after taking in the amazing views we made our way back down to crystal lake via the fire road thus completing the Hawkins Loop. @jeanlovee #angelesnationalforest #sangabrielmountains #wilderness #mthawkins #mthawkinsloop #mthawkinsridge #middlemthawkins #mtsadiehawkins #southmounthawkins #crystallake #windygap #pct #loophike #adventureawaits #explore #livewild #livefree #outdoors #forest #mountains #socal #takeahike
11.5 mile loop hike from crystal lake to the summit of South Mount Hawkins where a fire lookout tower once stood. #angelesnationalforest #sangabrielmountains #southmounthawkins #crystallake #windygap #anffla98 #firelookout #toilet #burn #explore #hiking #getoutdoors #pct #socal
#️⃣4️⃣4️⃣ South Mount Hawkins Loop. Distance: 11.1 miles. Elevation Gain: 3,143. . If you told me a year ago that I would be spending days in the mountains with women that I’ve never actually me before, I’d call you crazy, but it’s actually becoming a thing. On Sunday I found myself in Angeles National Forest with @tracey.s_journey. We have followed each other on instagram for about a year now but this was our first time on the trail together. It was so nice to walk along exchanging the back stories behind the adventures that we’ve posted about. I’m so happy to have found a niche of people, of women, that I feel so comfortable with the first time I meet them in the most unconventional of places. . . . #hike #california #hikecalifornia #52hikechallenge2017 #womenwhohike #wwhmember #optoutside #forceofnature #betheadventure #angelesnationalforest #sangabriels #southmounthawkins #pct #hikesocal #socalhiker #hikingismagical #peoplewhohike #idhikethatcrew #socaltravels #todsl #getoutstayout #visitcalifornia #werehikers #mtnchicks #girlsonmountaintops #choosemountains #adventure #mountains
Views of mountain layers for days. 💙🏔⛰ 👀Mount Baldy on left, Santiago Peak above my head . . Met up with fellow @womenwhohike member and @52hikechallenge 'er @outandaboutkatie for a lovely hike in the Crystal Lake Recreation Area. It was a beautiful day for discovering a new area to play in the woods and make a new friend. 💙👯 . . 11/19/17 11 miles, 3145' gain . . #grateful #perspective #southmounthawkins #viewsfordays #lovethemountains . . . #52hikechallenge2017 #womenwhohike #hikeit #optoutside #hikerlife #seekthetrails #uhikelikeus #wwhmember #hikrlife #peoplewhohike #keepitwild #goatworthy #wanderlust #forceofnature #rootsrated #wildernessbadass #todsl #werehikers #outdoor_project #hikemorebitchless #toughwomenonly #notoverthehillyet #mothernaturerocks
Day 30: Mile 375.8 (ele. 7,795ft.) - Mile 387.8 (#MountWilliamson Summit; ele. 8,215ft.) I started two miles below the summit of #MountBadenPowell in the #AngelesNationalForest & ended my day atop Mount Williamson. It was a day of #peakbagging & hiking along the crest of the mountain range passing #MountIslip , #ThroopPeak & #SouthMountHawkins . The sunset from 8,200ft & being all alone on a mountain top was a pretty amazing way to end the day. #TrekThePCT #AEKHikesThePCT #PCT2017
Why do I hate the first mile or two of a hike so much? I feel like I'm going to pass out, vomit, or just turn around. I need some kind of warm-up hike before the actual hike. #angelesnationalforest #optoutside #hikingjunkie #sangabrielmountains #todsl #socaltravels #lahikes #sgmtnsforever #modernhiker #52hikechallenge2017 #southmounthawkins @modernhiker @mphodge82 @lynabeans115
We were looking for snow yesterday on our way to South Mount Hawkins from Crystal Lake but what we found and saw was a beautiful view above the clouds. #aboveheaven #southhawkinspeak #southmounthawkins #crosscountry #notrail #crystallake #sangabrielmountains #hikingadventures #godisgoodallthetime #godscreation #getoutside #gooutdoors #
Got to visit the little Michael Powell memorial on South Mount Hawkins. This drawing of Mikey is amazing.

#highway39 and #sangabrielreservoir from #southmounthawkins . A tough hike for a summer day, but well worth it.
New video!! Link in bio. A few weeks ago I set out to summit four peaks, in the Angeles National Forest, and I got more then I planned for. The photo is a screen grab from a wind shaped pine on the PCT. #neverstopexploring #hike #hikescapela #angelesnationalforest #mounthawkins #windygap #pct #vsco #vscocam #southmounthawkins
I know this picture won't mean anything to anyone who isn't an outdoorsy Southern Californian, but this is the lookout tower at South Mount Hawkins in the San Gabriels. I took this photo in May, 2001 after riding my bike there. This tower was destroyed in the Curve fire in September, 2002. I'm glad I got the chance to see it before it died.
