San Gorgonio Mountain Via Mine Shaft Saddle Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This area was impacted by the 2015 Lake Fire. As of 2016, the trail remains closed. Check with the Mill Creek Ranger Station at 909-382-2882 to determine if the trail has reopened. The Sky High Trail zigzags up the northeast and east slopes of San Gorgonio Mountain from Mine Shaft Saddle. When combined with the standard trail route from Dollar Lake Saddle, it makes for an ideal loop trip. You can go up one way and down the other, covering a good part of the unspoiled alpine country in the
eastern half of the San Gorgonio Wilderness.

The main attraction of the Sky High Trail is the superb view down over the Coachella Valley; on a clear day you can see
to the Salton Sea and beyond. Be in top shape for this one, particularly if you plan to hike it in one day. It is more enjoyable as an overnight backpack, camping at Dry Lake or at one of the timberline trail camps."
