My friends (Hue and Dawn) and I just recently agreed that we're going to hike all 9 peaks of the San Gorgonio Wilderness (listed above). It came about after we hiked the San Gorgonio Summit last July 12th, not for peak bagging reason but more on getting a good work-out. We are going to do it from the highest to the lowest peaks and then end it with a bang or I should say end with "pain" by hiking from peak to peak (30 miles, 9200ft elev. gain) in 1 day?! We'll see!
So first peak is San Gorgonio, the rooftop of Southern California. This is a trip every SoCal hiker should make at least once (1 is more than enough). The view from the top, on cloudless days, encompasses a 360-degree view of Coachella Valley to the Tehachapis, from Pacific to the Mojave Desert.
