Three Sisters

9 November 1968

By: How Bailey


Leader: How Bailey
Asst.: Dick Akawie

Twenty-seven hikers turned out to explore the ridge between Big and Little Morongo Creeks in search of three sisters. We found all three, and perhaps a big brother as well. After caravanning about 9 miles up Sherman Rd. from the town of Morongo Valley, we took off up an open but steep ridge to peak 8080'. This is the highest and most westerly of an obvious group of three major bumps on the ridge. It is a pleasant peak, with extensive views of San Gorgonio, San Jacinto, Salton Sea, and far out over the desert to east and north. We then traversed southeasterly over two intermediate bumps, ending up on a fairly rocky and fairly brushy summit at 7631'. Registers were left on both peaks. Descent was due south over rocks and through moderate brush, then down a canyon to the cars. Unfortunately, there is still some confusion as to whether the name Three Sisters applies to the 3 most easterly or the 3 highest of the 4 peaks we covered. The leader is pursuing this question further by correspondence with the Forest Service; but whatever is decided, the group on the hike has done them.
