Hike Timber Mountain

9.4 Miles Round Trip - 3400 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Icehouse Canyon Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Challenging inclines and sometimes dicey conditions (snow!) make this hike a true adventure, with worthwhile, scenic rewards.

Start out on Icehouse Canyon Trail. Depending on the time of year, there can be snow and ice patches on this trail, as well as strong winds. The trail is sunny and pleasant in summer, though you should check reports for thunderstorms.

From the Icehouse Saddle (3.6 miles), take the Timber Mountain Trail to the summit. Steel yourself for the last 0.25 miles to the top, which is particularly steep.

Timberrrrrr!

We love this hike because it was one of the first ones we did in the San Gabriels. Be sure to get to the trailhead early because this is a very popular spot among hikers and people just driving up to the mountains to hang out for the day.
