Swarthout Valley Information

Location: Town of Wrightwood

Swarthout Valley Description

Swarthout Valley is the major valley that the town of Wrightwood is located in. The Valley was formed by the shifting of the San Andreas Fault, which runs east-west in this particular area. Along the north wall of Swarthout Valley is the ridge that extends from Table Mountain. Along the south wall of Swarthout Valley is Blue Ridge and Right Mountain. Along the east end of Swarthout Valley is Circle Mountains, and beyond that, the San Andreas Fault continues down Lone Pine Canyon. Swarthout Valley also has several canyons that branch off from it, including Sheep Canyon, Heath Canyon, Acorn Canyon, Flume Canyon, Buford Canyon and Government Canyon.
