Iron Mountain Information

Elevation: 8,007'
Location: South of Wrightwood

Iron Mountain Description

Iron Mountain is a jagged peak along the west-running ridge of Mt Baldy. The terrain is very rocky and steep. Iron Mountain can be seen from most places within the San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork). Iron Mountain and the ridge it is part of, act as the steep south wall for the canyon of Fish Fork. Even though the peak of Iron Mountain stands at only 8,007' (which is small compared to some of the other local mountains), it is still very prominent as it drops straight down to the bottom of the San Gabriel River Basin.

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

Directions to Iron Mountain from Wrightwood

From Wrightwood, travel westbound on Highway 2 to Inspiration Point. This location offers great views of Iron Mountain, which is mounted along the east side of the San Gabriel River Basin (East Fork). You can also see, from this point of view, how Iron Mountain is part of the ridge that connects with Mt Baldy to the east. If a strenuous hiking trip is on your calendar, take the North Backbone Trail (from the backside of Wright Mountain) to the peak of Mt Baldy. From here, follow the ridge line across from Mt Baldy to Iron Mountain. Don't attempt this unless you hike A LOT and know what your body is capable of. Bring Water!
