San Gorgonio via Vivian Creek Professional Review and Guide

"At 11,499 feet, San Gorgonio Mtn. is the tallest summit in Southern California and is an obligatory climb for serious local mountaineers. The Vivian Creek Trail was the first established route to the summit of San Gorgonio. At the behest of Thomas Aker, owner of the Forest Home resort in Mill Creek, the trail was hacked up the steep and brushy mountainside under the direction of Albert Vivian of Yucaipa in 1898. Now that there are numerous excellent trails on the mountain, many hikers still believe Vivian Creek is the best. It is steep and direct, offers fantastic views, and passes three fine trail camps en route."
