That is correct that no day hike permit is required for San Gorgonio Wilderness.
And you might be right that next year the summer months might get really crowded.
USFS usually doesn’t require permits for day hikes except places like Mt Whitney Portal, Half Dome are a few but if you have been there they can still feel very crowded. Hopefully our trailhead parking lot size will limit the amount of visitors. I will just feel sorry for the overnighters that might have trouble finding a place to park next year. And the traffic congestion in the nearby town of Angeles Oaks and Forest Falls.
