  • At 11,499 feet, San Gorgornio Mountain is the highest peak in California south of the Sierra.  
     
  • The peak is one of eleven peaks that are over 10,000 feet in elevation in the southeast portion of the San Bernardino Mountains.
     
  • In 1852, the summit of the nearby10, 624 - foot San Bernardino Peak provided the initial baseline and meridian from which all land surveys for Southern California originate.
     
  • The San Gorgonio Mountain maintains the longest recorded line of sight in the contiguous United States – it is plainly visible from the summit of Mount Whitney, 190 miles away.
     
  • The San Bernardino Mountains are unique in that they have an east–west orientation, making them transverse to the general north–south orientation of most of California's coastal mountains.
