Prairie Fork Description
Prairie Fork is located south of Wrightwood, between Blue Ridge and Pine Mountain Ridge. All water from the Prairie Fork dumps into the East Fork of the San Gabriel River. Prairie Fork is home to two campgrounds, Lupine Campground and Cabin Flat Campground. Located at the entrance of Lupine Campground is the trail head to the Fish Fork / Pine Mountain Ridge Trail. This trail offers great views looking down toward Lupine Campground and the rest of Prairie Fork.
Directions to Prairie Fork from Wrightwood
Take Highway 2 westbound from Wrightwood to Inspiration Point. Take Blue Ridge Road from Inspiration Point eastbound along the Blue Ridge. This road offers views looking down into Prairie Fork. If you drive too fast on this road, you may end up at the bottom of Prairie Fork faster than you anticipated. Otherwise, continue on Blue Ridge Road until it splits from Guffy Campground, where the lower road takes you down a winding path to Lupine Campground in Prairie Fork.
