Boucher Hill

Peak Name: Boucher Hill
Distance: 4.1 miles
Date: July 27, 2019
Summit: 5,420 feet

With my foot not at 100% and the high temperatures, I opted for Boucher Hill. I had considered doing it as a two-fee with Volcan Mountain but did not want to attempt that much mileage. I parked at the Silvercrest picnic spot and headed down the road to the trailhead. A nice breeze kept me cool as even at 8 am, it was starting to warm up. The trail gently works its way for about a mile until it reaches the lookout tower. The marine layer hugged the coast, but otherwise, the views were lovely. I could see Mt. Baldy and San Gorgonio In the distance.

After chatting with the volunteers for a bit, I headed back down the trail to the car. I debated doing the full loop but did not want to push my foot yet.

Once I got back to the car, the temperature was already 80°F. Glad I hit it early.
