San Gorgonio Peak – Video Trip Report

September 15th, 2009

This is a trip report of the Vivian Creek trail, the more popular route to the summit.  San Gorgonio Peak is the tallest peak in Southern California at 11,500 feet and is near Big Bear.  We left San Diego and hiked to High Camp, dropped our packs, then continued to the summit before heading back to camp.  This trail is very challenging, especially the last couple miles as you are at elevation.  Arriving at the summit later in the day allowed us to have the whole place to ourselves which was really nice.  We hiked on a Friday and High Camp was not that crowded.  On our way out  Saturday we passed a ton of people heading to that camp, so I’m glad we went on Friday.  You do need a permit to hike in the San Gorgonio wilderness, they are free and all the info you need is on the wilderness website.   Check out the links section for details.
