Date Climbed: Nov 13, 2010


Beautiful day for hiking. Left the Vivian Creek Trail at around 10,200' and sidehilled (relatively unpleasant) down to the creek then up the drainage to the east. Nice views from the top. Climbed up to Dragon's Head afterwards.

DebWhoops -   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2009


...I stayed on Vivian Creek trail too long and nearly ended up on Gorgonio. Took the Mineshaft trail and skidded down the sandy drainage, crossed the tarn and attacked Bighorn on her flank. Hmmmm, no Bighorns in sight but a couple of eagles were circling, very wonderful to watch.
Perfect cool weather (70's) considering it was over 100 at home. :P
Next stop - Dragonshead.

Went up Vivian Creek Trail to summit of San Gorgonio. Then dropped down Gorgonio's south face, across the Tarn (10,600') and headed left for the summit of Bighorn. Then, back down to the Tarn and traversed upward westerly to a saddle below Dragons Head and then up the sharp narrow ridge to Dragon's summit. We descended across a small creek back toward the Vivian Creek Trail and picked up that trail about a mile above the "look out" point.

Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2007
Did as part of Sierra club backpack. Camped at fish creek saddle. Did Dragons head, Bighorn, and Lake as dayhike from fish creek saddle. Dragons Head and Bighorn are great hikes, you have to go down into the "Tarn" which looks like a huge dry sandy lakebead and back up (from San Gorgonio trail).

More interesting than its neighbor, San Gorgonio. If you're tired of the crowds on San Gorgonio and the monotony of the trail, take this off-trail diversion.
