South Fork Trail Professional Review and Guide
"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. There is only one designated wilderness area in the San Bernardino Mountains. But for multitudes of hikers, it is the grandest in all of Southern California. This is the 35,000-acre San Gorgonio Wilderness, a high mountain wonderland of granite peaks, forests of pine and ?r, lush subalpine meadows, sparkling streams and placid lakes, and abundant wildlife. This region is set aside to be preserved forever in its pristine state."
