From Cloudburst Summit

"This one surprised me. What a nice hike paired with Winston Ridge. Definitely the better part of the San Gabriels. Easy peasy. Part of a sweep of some HPS peaks I needed in the area: Hillyer, Winston Peak, Winston Ridge, Mount Akawie, and Kratka Ridge." - JustinB, Jun 27, 2018
"I went up the standard way up the use trail from Cloudburst Summit. Winston Peak was the first of 3 peaks this day (Peak 6903 and Winston Ridge to follow). Lovely day to boot, and the scenery was lovely as well. The summit has no register nor benchmark, but has a few rocks to scramble. I then went down the steep north side to the saddle between it and 6903. I hiked cross country to the top of 6903 then down to the saddle between 6903 and Winston Ridge and then the use trail to Winston Ridge. I returned via use trail around 6903 and Winston Peak to a dirt road to my car at Cloudburst Summ" - brianpowell, May 27, 2018
"What a great hike! The first part of the trail is on the PCT and full of shade. Mostly downhill until you reach a dirt road, then it starts heading uphill. Once I reached the saddle, I explored the Bump 6903' then headed to Winston Peak. It is a steep climb from the saddle. I didn't have enough time to explore Winston Ridge. Wonderful views of Palmdale from the top of Winston." - rickb, Feb 16, 2018
"An unused (by vehicles) dirt road gradually climbs from Cloudburst Summit. This is where the hike to the summit begins. Eventually, a well defined use trail leaves the old road bed and elevates to the summit. This was an easy climb, but while encountering hunters with rifles near the top, I quickly deduced that it was hunting season. I had to be wary of imitating a deer the rest of my time out there. It seemed to work. From Winston Peak, I descended its steep northern slope and continued on the Peak 6903 and to Winston Ridge. In capturing all three, I hiked a total of 5 miles. However, for jus" - Peak-Conquistador, Oct 14, 2017
"Very short, easy hike up use trail from Cloudburst Summit (7,018') on Angeles Crest Hwy. Many big boulders and rocks on the summit area. Lots of Jeffrey Pines enroute as well, so the area smells like vanilla cookies on a sunny day. Elevation gain is about 500' from highway to peak." - brianpowell, Sep 24, 2016
