Come to Foster Point, not only for the great view, but also for an opportunity to identify many of Southern California’s highest mountains. A direction finder, installed by the Sierra Club, shows 17 peaks, including the Southland’s highest, San Gorgonio Mountain. The shoulder of Monument Peak cuts off the distant view to the east and the south, but the panorama from north to northeast is excellent. If you know the way to Foster Point well, try coming up here on a moonlit night when the desert down below glows ghostly white.

Nice little hike. It recently snowed so finding the trail was a little bit difficult. Beautiful views, highly recommended.

This is a great vista and when you go down the trail to Oasis Springs it is a tremendous hike with great scenery along the way of the desert to the east.
