This hike is approximately 10 miles, round-trip. With an elevation gain between 950-1400 ft, we will cross the river a total of 12 times. The river is about 3 1/2 ft deep and 20ft wide, with the water running fast and cold. Along the way, we will get to see the famous Swan Rock. Our goal will be to reach the bridge which was built in 1930 as a connector from the San Gabriel Valley to Wrightwood.
