Wildhorse Creek

Wildhorse Creek Professional Review and Guide

"This trip follows a trail up over chaparral-coated ridges and down into upper Wildhorse Creek, superseding the old trail that followed the length of the creek. For an overnight stay there is Wildhorse Creek Trail Camp, nestled amid tall Jeffrey pines and white firs alongside the trickling creek.

If you like solitude and nature’s peace, this is the trip for you. In summer, when a multitude of hikers tramp through nearby San Gorgonio Wilderness, Wildhorse Canyon is usually left alone. I like it best in April or early May, when the air is crisp, Wildhorse Creek runs full, and Old Grayback sparkles under its snowy mantle."

"Wildhorse Creek carves a canyon along a fault line down from the shoulder of Sugarloaf Mtn. The well-built Wildhorse Trail switchback takes you up to Wildhorse Creek Trail Camp, located at a spring near the top of the creek. This is an enjoyable backpacking trip or dayhike in the spring when San Gorgonio is clad in deep snow, and also in the summer when San Gorgonio permits are difficult to obtain."
