Wright Mountain (Elevation 8,505')
Wright Mountain is only 8,505' in elevation however, it seems to tower as the largest landmark above the town of Wrightwood, California. Wright Mountain is the final mountain to the north end of the North Baldy Backbone and the starting point to the North Backbone Trail. On its north slope are two large landslide scars that can be seen from almost anywhere in the High Desert. It is the highest point of what is known as the Blue Ridge, which encompasses the area including Mountain High Ski Resort and Inspiration Point. To the north-east of Wright Mountain is Slover Canyon, which quickly drops down into Lone Pine Canyon. On the north-west slope of Wright Mountain is Acorn Canyon and the Acorn Trail, which travels down the canyon to the town of Wrightwood. Not too far to the west of Wright Mountain is Guffy Campground, with great views of the San Gabriel Mountains.
