“Popular trail to the summit of Mt. Islip from Little Jimmy Campground.”— Taylor Reilly
From this junction, stay right and continue to the summit of Mt. Islip. After reaching the summit, you'll find ruins of an old stone cabin that was built to house the fire lookout that was once stationed on the summit. From Mt. Islip summit, there are panoramic views of San Gabriel Canyon to the south and the Mojave Desert to the north.
After enjoying the summit and catching your breath, descend the way you came or you can make a loop hike with the Islip Ridge Trail #9W08, Big Cienega Trail #9W07 and Windy Gap Trail #9W06.
