Los Angeles: San Gorgonio Mountain - TRIP PREPLANNING

CA

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 6.6 miles


Distance: 16 miles round trip. Elevation Gain: 5600 ft. Hike Time: 9.5 hours. Difficulty: Strenuous. Summary: This trail is a monster, definitely one of the most demanding in Southern California. You gain nearly a vertical mile in less than 8 miles distance. Research indicates there is no more than 400 yards of downhill, and around the same amount for flat trail. It is up the entire way, and most of that way is steep. The steepest sections are the beginning mile of the trail, after you cross the creek and the mile and a half after the saddle where you can first spot San Jacinto, nearing the summit. DIRECTIONS TO TRAILHEAD: I-10 E to CA 38 E. In 15 1mi., turn R onto Valley of the Falls Dr. through Forest Falls, CA. Turn L onto Falls Campground Rd. and follow until road ends @ parking lot. Ranger Contact: San Gorgonio Wilderness - Mill Creek Ranger Station (909)794-1123
