San Jacinto Peak, also known as Mount San Jacinto, is a 10,834 foot mountain peak in the San Jacinto Mountains, in Riverside County, California. Lying within Mount San Jacinto State Park it is the highest both in the range and the county, and serves as the southern border of the San Gorgonio Pass.

OLD VERSION

To the east the peak towers over the city of Palm Springs (elevation 479′); to the west, it borders the mountain community of Idyllwild (elevation 5,413′). The steep escarpment of its north face, above Snow Creek, climbs over 10,000′ in 7 miles. This is one of the largest gains in elevation over such a small horizontal distance in the contiguous United States.

San Jacinto Peak is easily accessible, as many trails penetrate the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. One popular route starts with a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway from Valley Station at 2,643′ feet near Palm Springs up to Mountain Station at 8,516′. From there, one can easily climb the mountain face via trails.

Another route is to hike the Marion Mountain Trail near the mountain town of Idyllwild, off Highway 243. The Cactus to Clouds Trail involves an arduous climb of approximately 10,700′ feet from the desert floor in Palm Springs to the summit. This trail has no water sources until 8,500′, so early starts are advised to avoid the temperatures which often soar above 100°F.

Hiking trails reach the summit from four sides of the mountain, and one route can be completed with assistance from the nearby ski lift. The trails vary in difficulty, and there are plenty of options for novices, as well as experienced hikers.

Mt. Baldy Notch – (3.5 miles one way): The trail begins at Manker Flats, where the Baldy Notch Service Road can be taken to the notch. The trail provides scenic views at the notch, and other trails ahead.

Devil’s Backbone – (3.2 miles one way from Notch: A service road at Mt. Baldy Notch leads to the Devil’s Backbone trailhead and continues to the main peak.

Mt. Baldy Trail – (6.5 miles one way to Mt. Baldy Summit): This is the oldest and longest trail to the summit. Because it starts at Mt. Baldy Village, it has almost 6000′ of elevation gain.

Icehouse Canyon – (3.7 miles one way): The Icehouse Canyon trail begins in the parking lot at Icehouse and goes all the way up to Icehouse Saddle where a number of trails can be taken either to the Notch or to nearby peaks such as Ontario and Cucamonga. (5.5 miles).

Ski Hut Trail – This trail follows the east side of the San Antonio Creek canyon to a small backcountry ski hut owned by the Sierra Club. A use trail continues around the left side of the bowl and then to the summit.

Three T’s – (5.3 miles one way): The trail starts and ends at the Icehouse Canyon Trailhead. It leads to views from the summits of Thunder, Timber and Telegraph Mountains.

Above Interstate 8

The Pine Creek Wilderness is a sloping mountainous area of 13,261 acres, ranging from 2000′ elevation in the south to 4000′ in the north. It is situated entirely in California, bordered by the Hauser Wilderness to the south. Vegetation consists primarily of chaparral, dominated by chamise and scrub oak, with oak woodland along stream bottoms. Wilderness permits are required for both day and overnight use.

Several trails provide access, and receive only light human use. The Espinosa Trail leaves the Horsethief Trailhead on the west side of the Wilderness and switchbacks down into Horsethief Canyon taking you to the waters of Pine Creek. From the pools and falls of Pine Creek the Espinosa Trail continues to the junction with the Secret Canyon Trail, a north / south trail that leads 13 miles to the northern boundary of the Wilderness.
