Thomas Mtn. Professional Review and Guide
"Thomas Mtn.’s long ridge forms the western side of the beautiful Garner Valley. It is perfectly situated to offer fantastic views of the Desert Divide and San Jacinto Wilderness. The lower slopes are covered in delightful stands of ribbonwoods. On the top of the ridge, cool breezes blow through the rich forest of Jeffrey pines, white firs, and incense cedars. Wildflowers are abundant in the spring and early summer. The mountain is named for Charles Thomas, a pioneer who founded a ranch in the valley in 1861. The valley was also known as Thomas Valley until the ranch was sold to Robert Garner, who gave the valley its present name."
