My recollection was that it was around ten miles round trip from Fish Creek. The dirt road to the trailhead was long and bumpy, but the hike was awesome. I’ve been trying to do all the peaks in SoCal that are over 10,000 elevation, and got to mark off Grinnell!
After climbing Grinnell, we went a little past the saddle toward Gorgonio. I spotted the use trail up from Lodgepole/Dry Lake.
At one point we considered attempting Gorgonio, but we got a late start, and the days were shorter in October.
I’d wait until the snow melts – good call.
