The hike meanders up shaded icehouse canyon beside a lovely stream that blossoms into a waterfall. The canyon was full of flowering bushes smelling of honeysuckle in early June. From the saddle, you hang a right to get to Kelly Camp and from there the trail steepens. You'll hit a number of soul killing false summits before you get to the actual summit, where the views are spectacular. You'll can get a good look at Baldy for example, a hike which I think is actually inferior to Ontario.

The first few miles of this hike are shaded and meander up icehouse canyon next to a lovely stream with a waterfall closer to the saddle. In June, the canyon was full of flowering bushes that smell of honeysuckle. From the saddle, you turn right and hike to Kelly's camp, on a moderate slope. The rest of the climb to Ontario is steep enough to make the multiple false summits disheartening. But, the views from the peak are tremendous. Overall, I enjoyed this hike even more than Mt. Baldy, which is clearly visible from Ontario.
