  • Vincent Gap Peak is an easy hike from the PCT or 3N26/PCT from Vincent Gap Parking Area. It is on the opposite side of Angeles Crest Highway from Mt. Baden-Powell. Lots of trees means a shadier hike in the summer months.
  • There is a short cross-country walk as the PCT rounds high up the west side of the peak. There is no scrambling, but a bit of wading through ceanothus and sagebrush, so watch out for snakes!
  • The summit is wooded, so you have to move around to openings to see views, but the vibe on top is peaceful, and mighty Baden-Powell looks lofty to the south!
