Route: San Gorgonio Mountain (CA)

California, US
17.2 mi

San Gorgonio is the tallest mountain in Southern California, and a rite of passage for serious hikers in the area. At 11,503′, “Old Grayback” provides an excellent high altitude training for those preparing to summit Mt. Whitney, and an easy drive from most of LA and Orange counties.

There are several trails leading up to San Gorgonio, but none as steep as the Vivian Creek trail, which in less than eight miles to the summit climbs over a vertical mile.

The ascent of San Gorgonio via Vivian Creek has a Strava segment.



The description for this route is the ascent only, but the distance listed appears to be the out and back (ascent and descent both).  The strava segment linked is for the ascent only as well and lists the correct distance although in km.
