The Cucamonga Wilderness Additions include the upper portions of the Lytle Creek watershed. The rugged slopes and canyons of this magnificent canyon country support some of Southern California’s largest sugar pine trees, Nelson’s big horn sheep, and the sensitive lemon lily. The Middle Fork Lytle Creek trail provides access to this relatively little visited portion of the wilderness, described in Trails of the Angeles as “one of the few islands of subalpine wilderness left in Southern California.” The trail is popular with anglers and others wishing to explore this uniquely-named wilderness.
