"I approached Wright Mountain from Guffy Campground via the PCT. After about a quarter mile from the intersection of the Acorn Trail, an unnamed use trail veers left, leaving the PCT. The trail fades in and out, creating a bit of a cross country route to the summit. Not much of a view from the summit, but a lot of trees. From the summit, I headed south to connect with the PCT. Pine Mountain was the next mountain over, but will need to be attempted another day. Weather was nearly perfect in the high country, making the visit a memorable one, despite dealing with the occasional hunter creeping ar" - Peak-Conquistador, Oct 28, 2017
"Unlike my first time, I did not hike all the way from Angeles Crest Highway.

I followed the use trail through chaparral and sagebrush, and the trail seems to disappear at the edge of the forested summit plateau. I did a short cross-country walk, and after a little wande" - brianpowell, Jun 18, 2016
"With Gobblers Knob. Trail was snow free except for at the top. Great views of the snowy Baldy area peaks. As always, the PCT was in excellent shape and was a pleasure to walk on." - klotito, Feb 28, 2016
