Middle Fork Lytle Creek

middle fork lytle creek

Lytle Creek gains force as it crashes its way down the from Icehouse Saddle towards an eventual death in the San Bernadino Valley, yet forms a spectacular gorge along the way.  The Middle Fork in particular is especially interesting from a canyoneering perspective; though not overly challenging or lengthy, it does offer a unique and exciting canyoneering experience that features two gorgeous and intense drops, including the finale which weighs in at an impressive 160 feet.  This route is short and sweet, and can be executed by beginners as a step up from Little Santa Anita Canyon or the like who wish to test their abilities on rope working and dealing with longer rappels.  The first fall is 110 feet, making for two back to back big wall drops.
