The Six-Pack of Peaks is an annual challenge that hundreds of people take throughout Southern California. In the course of the challenge, they will hike six challenging and progressively higher SoCal mountains:
- Mt Wilson
- Cucamonga Peak
- Mt San Antonio (aka Mt Baldy)
- San Bernardino Peak
- San Jacinto Peak
- San Gorgonio Peak
In the course of the challenge, they will hike over 82 miles and climb over 80,000 vertical feet. Some do it for bragging rights. Others do it to train for even bigger hikes like Mt Whitney or the John Muir Trail. But everyone who finishes can say they've done what few can claim -- completed the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge.
