- The San Gorgonio Wilderness embraces the summit of the San Bernardino mountain range, the highest in Southern California. Within its boundaries are 56,749 acres of timber, small meadows, lakes, and large barren slopes that stretch from the timberline to the summit of San Gorgonio Mountain, 11,502 feet.
The Aspen Grove Trail parking area is located about 2.6 miles off Highway 38. After crossing the creek, take the trail to the left. After 1.5 miles, the trail joins the Fish Creek Trail.
Free permits are required for all hikes into the San Gorgonio Wilderness. They may be obtained in person at Mill Creek Ranger Station, Barton Flats Visitor Center (summer only), and Big Bear Ranger Station.
