Iron Mountain (Elevation 8,007')
Although not as tall as some of the other peaks in the San Gabriel's, Iron Mountain is very rugged with steep slopes on most of its sides. There are many hidden mines located on the south side of Iron Mountain.
This mountain appears very large as it prominently rises above the east fork of the San Gabriel River. Iron Mountain is best viewed from Inspiration Point, just out of Wrightwood, on Highway 2. It appears as one of the centerpieces of the mountainous landscape with its rocky and somewhat jagged peak. To the north of Iron Mountain is the Fish Fork of the San Gabriel River.
