Pine Mountain Information

Elevation: 9,648'
Location: South of Wrightwood

Pine Mountain Description

Pine Mountain is the second highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains (with the exception of West Baldy) at an elevation of 9,648'. The peak of Pine Mountain can be seen from almost anywhere in the High Desert, as it rises just above Wright Mountain/Blue Ridge. Pine Mountain also shares a ridge line with Dawson Peak, which shares one with Mt Baldy. Pine Mountain also hosts part of the North Backbone Trail, which connects Wright Mountain with Mt Baldy, over very steep terrain.

Geographically, Pine Mountain separates Lytle Creek from the Sheep Mountain Wilderness. Pine Mountain Ridge, which stretches east from the peak, is the major ridge line viewed from Inspiration Point and almost anywhere else in the Sheep Mountain Wilderness area.

For more information, check out our San Gabriel Mountains website on the Wrightwood CA Network.

Directions to Pine Mountain from Wrightwood

For the best views of Pine Mountain, take Highway 2 westbound from Wrightwood up to Inspiration Point. This is a great view point. To get closer to Pine Mountain, take the Blue Ridge road eastbound from Inspiration Point to Guffy Campground for more great views, or to the backside of Wright Mountain where you can find the trail head to the North Backbone Trail, which connects Wright Mountain to Pine Mountain, Dawson Peak, and eventually Mt Baldy (San Antonio).
