Sturtevant Camp, established
in 1893, is the only camp from the great hiking era which is still in operation
in the San Gabriel Mountains. On October 2nd, there was a hike to
Sturtevant Camp. Special guest John Robinson joined the Sierra Madre
Search and Rescue team and accompanied the group of nearly 50 hikers up
to Sturtevant Camp, where they dined on a lunch brought to the camp by
mule train. After lunch came the hike down. The hike up is
estimated at 2.5 hours and the hike back at about 3 hours. There
was a shorter hike (2.5 hours) for the less experienced which went just
up to the falls and back. A $10 fee was charged which included the
cost of lunch. Children under 18 needed a signed medical release.
