My husband and I hiked to the top of Mt. Tehachapi. The road is steep and gets even steeper once it turns into just a trail. Not impossible, just steep. I couldn't believe how wonderfully cool it was at the top! We tried to do...More

We have camped here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Peaceful. We have also come up for the day to enjoy the snow, plenty of sledding areas and just beautiful settings to enjoy the peaceful view of snow. The Monastery is also a good side trip.
