The gate at the parking area where the hike to Rattlesnake Peak begins. This is the road that leads up to the "Tunnels to Nowhere".
Mount Baldy (as seen from below Rattlesnake Peak)
A typical section of the trail. It's basically just like this all the way to the top.
Rattlesnake peak to the right with Bumb 5030 to the left.
Bump 5030 to the left and Rattlesnake Peak to the right. In the foreground is a marker at about the point the ridge starts to curve to the North.
Another section of the trail where it's been cut back fairly well.
An old dead tree just past Bump 5030. This is one of only about 2 places where you might find some shade if you need it.

I believe this is South Mount Hawkins (as seen from Rattlesnake Peak).
The USGS benchmark. Note that it's marked Fang which you will also see on the topo maps.

This register dates back to 1964! I think that makes it the oldest one in the San Gabriels.

The first of the two "Tunnels to Nowhere". This one is not visible from the Rattlesnake Peak trail. It's about a quarter mile up the road from where the trail starts.
The second tunnel as seen from the first tunnel. This one looks to be about another mile up the road.
The Heaton Flat trail as it works it's way up to the ridge.
