San Bernardino East Peak is located within the San Gorgonio Wilderness on the western end of the San Bernardino Mountains. It is the second 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 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 strenuous day hike from at least 3 different trailheads. The views from the summit are stellar. One can see much of Southern California (on a clear day) as well as Mt. San Jacinto, Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. Baldy.
