Anderson Peak is located within the San Gorgonio Wilderness. At 10,840 feet it is the third highest peak in Southern California. It is the third peak, in a series of peaks, that lie west to east on the San Bernardino crest/ridge, starting with San Bernardino Peak and ending with Mt. San Gorgonio, the highest point in Southern California. Many hikers will bag this peak, along with the seven other peaks on the crest, while hiking the San Bernardino Mountain Traverse. This is normally done as a 2-3 day backpack. It can also be climbed as a moderate to strenous day hike (12.5 miles with 4,000+ elevation gain) via the Forsee Creek Trail. As with all the other peaks on the crest, the views from the summit are awesome. On a clear day, you can see much of Southern California as well as the San Jacinto and San Gabriel mountain ranges.
