The storm last week has brought a substantial amount of fresh snow to the San Gorgonio Wilderness and Cucamonga Wilderness. With the snow level starting at 6000ft and becoming a 1ft deep by 7000ft with even deeper snow in the higher elevations. Most of the trailheads are somewhat remote and can be difficult to reach because of icy/snowy road conditions. So just like packing the right gear for the trail, it can be equally important to travel in an appropriate car that has 4 wheels drive with snow tires or chains. Also some trailheads have dirt roads to get to them that can have some very large pot holes or boulders which can cause trouble with low clearance vehicles. These obstacles along with many others people coming to enjoy the fresh snow can cause some troubles getting to the trailhead. After finally getting to a trailhead is when the hike begins and you are the vehicle which will rely on what you brought to protect yourself. So remember to bring what you need to have a safe and enjoyable time.
