    Route Description for Delamar Mountain via PCT Hike

    Featuring gorgeous landscape views that include the San Bernardino Mountains, Big Bear Lake, and sprawling woodlands, the Delamar Mountain via PCT Hike is a spectacular adventure that offers a great return on your investment in terms of required effort.

    Setting out from the trailhead along Polique Canyon Road, you will head to the southwest through the cover of the forest, following along the Pacific Crest Trail as it traverses the undulating landscape and bends to the northwest. Much of this initial stretch of the trail is forested, so take some time to appreciate the beauty of the woodland setting before the better views come into play near Delamar Mountain.

    Reaching a junction in the trail, you will turn back to the southwest and keep left along the path to gain a considerable amount of elevation up the side of the mountain. After a strong effort, you will arrive at the top of Delamar Mountain to enjoy some spectacular views of the San Bernardino Mountains. From here, simply turn back along the trail for the return into the trailhead where you began.
