Potato mountain hike MT. Baldy

This area was badly burned about ten years back but is almost completely recovered. I researched it a little and found this. Remember, it is ALMOST completely recovered!. This is a short day hike you can take the wife and kids and pic nick on the bluffs above the city. Hikers, for all you do, this spud's for you. Potato Mountain, which sits above Claremont, offers the hiker great clear-day vistas of the San Gabriel Valley, eastern Los Angeles County, and parts of San Bernardino County. The 3,360-foot, russet-brown mountain, is a refuge from the busy metropolis and its far-flung suburbs. Splitting Potato Mountain is the Evey Canyon, watered by a little creek bubbling through an oak woodland and a tangle of vines and gooseberries. Unfortunately, a devastating 2002 wildfire scorched Evey Canyon, as well as other nearby canyons and hillsides above Claremont, and thoroughly roasted Potato Mountain. Yes, the land is recovering but don't expect the pre-fire pastoral scene when you hike Evey Canyon. Herman Garner saved the canyon from home development and gave it to Pomona College (one of the Claremont Colleges) Department of Biology with the condition that it remain pristine. Herman Garner Biological Preserve is used today for student field research, and for long walks away from it all.
