Did you know?
At 11,499 feet, San Gorgonio Mountain is the highest peak in California south of the Sierra.
The peak is one of eleven peaks that are over 10,000 feet in elevation in the southeast portion of the San Bernardino Mountains.
In 1852, the summit of the nearby10,624 – foot San Bernardino Peak provided the initial baseline and meridian from which all land surveys for Southern California originate.
The San Gorgonio Mountain maintains the longest recorded line of sight in the contiguous United States – it is plainly visible from the summit of Mount Whitney, 190 miles away.
The San Bernardino Mountains are unique in that they have an east–west orientation, making them transverse to the general north–south orientation of most of California's coastal mountains.
