Peaks: San Gabriel Peak
Points of Interest: Mueller Tunnel
This hike yields great views of canyons and peaks throughout. It passes through Meuller Tunnel with excellent views down Eaton Canyon toward Henninger Flats as it winds around the base of the San Gabriel Peak. This hike reaches the highest peak in the Angeles Forest front country area south of Angeles Crest Highway. The views are spectacular in all directions and the peak itself is only the size of a large room offering a wonderful perch for 360 degree viewing. There’s also a nice bench to relax on and take in the excellent views of too many peaks to name and to see as far away as Catalina Island on a clear day
