Warner Springs to San Gorgonio Pass Professional Review and Guide

"The San Jacinto Mountains are the high point—and the highlight—of the Pacific Crest Trail’s excursion through the northern Peninsular Ranges, and they afford the first true high-mountain air and scenery of your journey. But this section of trail also includes many miles of walking under shady live oaks and through the shadeless chaparral community (see below). On the Desert Divide, where you have your first taste of the San Jacinto Mountains, you find an interesting combination of pine forest, chaparral and desert species. Leaving the San Jacintos, the PCT plunges almost 8000 feet down to arid San Gorgonio Pass, and in so doing passes through every life zone in California save for the alpine zone."
