Mt. Waterman (elevation 8,031′) is possibly the best example of a peak being in the “Goldilocks Zone” for hiking experiences in Angeles National Forest. At any time of day and any time of year, Mt. Waterman is a top choice for getting in a great hike–especially when reached from the trailhead near Buckhorn Campground. In summer, being heavily wooded and located at a reasonably high elevation; it is comparatively cool. A great choice for hiking in snow, it’s contours and trail don’t have the significantly more dangerous exposures as so many of the other available options. With great views, large boulders, and several excellent spots to rest or engage in a brief bit of rock scrambling along its long summit, Mt. Waterman will not disappoint.
