Winston Peak (elevation 7,502) is the only peak in this challenge that I’ve never seen others at unless I brought them there myself. Simultaneously close to parking at Cloudburst Summit and the trail leading to its summit clearly off the beaten path (and not on most maps), Winston Peak feels both accessible and remote. Heavily wooded with rock outcrops and boulders along the peak as well as the trails leading to it from both the north and the south; options to explore and discover unique spots to rest (perhaps even camp) are abundant. It is now a personal favorite which I will visit multiple times every year I live near Angeles National Forest.
