Momyer/Alger Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Alger Creek rises high on San Bernardino Peak Divide and flows steeply down the south slope into Mill Creek Canyon. Deeply recessed into the mountainside, shaded by rich stands of pine, fir, cedar, and alder, the little creek seldom suffers the full glare of sunlight.
It is a delightful place to relax and keep cool and enjoy nature’s sylvan charms on a hot summer day. The Forest Service has built a beautiful trail camp on a bench shaded by tall incense-cedars, just above the churning waters of Alger Creek."
--John W. Robinson with David Money Harris, 100 Hikes in Southern California: San Bernardino Mountain Trails (Wilderness Press).
"The southern face of the San Bernardino Divide is rarely visited. Tucked away half way up the slopes are two splendid trail camps, located alongside rushing creeks and shaded beneath towering incense cedars. Backpackers looking for solitude can find it here. In the summer when popular trails are reserved weeks in advance, these camps are usually available."
--David & Jennifer Money Harris, Afoot and Afield: Inland Empire (Wilderness Press).
