San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork) Information

Location: South of Wrightwood

San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork) Description

Technically the San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork) encompasses all of the canyons and valleys from the south side of Blue Ridge, the west side of the Baldy Backbone, and the east side of Mt Baden Powell. This would include Mine Gulch, Vincent Gulch, Prairie Fork, Fish Fork, and several smaller canyons that all feed into the same river. The main canyon which hosts the East Fork of the San Gabriel River begins around the base of Pine Mountain Ridge and Mine Gulch. From here, the San Gabriel River winds down past the base of Iron Mountain, under the Bridge to Nowhere, and on to the San Gabriel Reservoir.
