jeremy, where did you end up going?
I'm dying to get out with my kids and OOS husband now that they are finally old enough. They are 4 and 7. I've been looking all over san gabriels, san gorgonio etc. for something reasonably flat/short/loop like. I can't seem to find much except maybe long valley off the tram in san jacinto, but those tram tickets add up fast. I'm looking at walk in camp sites now (gotta start somewhere)
