Ontario Peak & Bighorn Peak • Description

Icehouse Canyon, located above Mount Baldy village, is a popular trailhead.
The steep trail leads up to Icehouse Saddle (3.4 miles), where it splits into Cucamonga Peak, Ontario Peak and Bighorn Peak, and the Three Tees. The next section, which passes Kellys Camp (0.9 miles), leads up to a saddle between Ontario Peak and Bighorn Peak (0.4 miles). Here the trail forks, it continues on west to Ontario Peak (1.4 miles) and east to Bighorn Peak (0.7 miles).
A National Forest Adventure Pass and Wilderness Permit is required, the latter of which can be self-issued at the trailhead.

Ontario Peak & Bighorn Peak • Personal Notes

This is a great day hike. Ontario Peak is less visited than Cucamonga Peak, and Bighorn Peak offers even more solitude (I was the only person at the summit).
