I'm hiking all or part of the trail from La Qunita to the Sugar Loaf Cafe this Saturday, and would enjoy doing it with somebody who knows the route...

A lot of people just don't know about that trail. You might talk Cy into doing it this winter when there's too much snow on Skyline. :D

I'm getting the impression that this forum is almost exclusively focused on the skyline trail. Probably should have taken the "Mt San Jacinto" title a bit more seriously. Are there any other forums for the coachella valley in general? I've visited the websites for the two hiking clubs, but they don't really have a forum... thanks!

Yeah, I've noticed a lack of discussion about desert trails. SummitPost California section has enough people that you might find somebody. Whitney Portal message board has lots of hikers too. Maybe some of them do training hikes in the Santa Rosa's.

Guadalupe Trail

Perry is right. I will be ready for it when there is too much snow on Skyline.
If I am not mistaken this trail starts off as the Boo Hoff trail, then picks up the Guadalupe trail to the Sugarloaf Cafe. A car shuttle would get you back after about 5000 ft gain and many miles. I think Cynthia and Robie would be interested. I will forward this on to them. Below is a map and description.

I hiked the Boo Hoff Trail with four friends last May. I think I would have enjoyed the experience had we started earlier, say, at 4am, instead of at 6:30am, when it was already 72 degrees. The temperature on the day of the hike was quite warm--a sizzling 106 degrees, although it seemed even hotter than that--probably because I was still recovering from the flu. (Yeah, I'm an idiot.) The trail is long and, in my opinion, devoid of interesting sights, save the old miners camp and, near the end of the trail, Horse Thief Creek, which provides shade and water to weary hikers--a welcomed relief from the heat.

In two areas--one near the first creek crossing and the other when you're in the Pinyon Flat drainage, the trail seems to peter out; however, if you look closely for the trail and also for foot prints, you should be able to discern the trail, although it's a good idea to go with someone who has hiked the Boo Hoff before...if it's you're first time hiking it.

You can edit your postings if you're signed in. A little box saying "edit" pops up next to the box that says "quote" in the top right-hand corner of your posting. (I haven't figured out how to use the quote box yet.)

I occasionally post when I wake up and can't get back to sleep at night, and I look at it the next day and there are so many typos I can hardly figure out what I was trying to say.

Anyway, I'm impressed - you're one of the few people on the internet who knows the difference between "your" and "you're".

z -- You're in trouble with me. It's your fault that you made me try the quote button.
