Winter conditions exist in the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Be prepared for ice and deep snow, bring crampons and /or snow shoes and above all do not hike past your limits. Even if it’s warm and sunny at lower elevations, it’s cold and icy in the wilderness. Search and Rescue advises always hike with someone, and not leave your group. Bring extra food, flashlight, and warm clothes. Be aware of your surroundings – trails look different in the snow and are sometimes are hard to find.
Roads 1n02 / 1n05 that go into Aspen Grove and Fish Creek are closed for the winter.
