My two Boys, Nephew, and Myself took Momyer Creek ( camped at Saxton) continued to San Gorgonio Peak and came down Vivian Creek Trail...
it was an intense hike but very rewarding ... it was an overnight trip we went in July of 2016.

This is the long route to San Gorgonio Summit, Vivian Creek being the popular and short one. Momyer though is hard, because of the distance, good training for more demanding hikes. There are a few campsites along the way and water sources. You'll need a permit to hike and camp. Altitude changes from 5500 ft at the parking lot to 11500 ft at the summit. Camp sites are Alger Creek, Dobbs, Saxton Camp at 8400 ft (last water source) and Dollar Lake Saddle at 10000 ft. Since this route is not as famous you'll have the trail for yourself. 13.5 miles each way. Good workout !
