The Providence Mountains are found in the eastern Mojave Desert of San Bernardino County, California, U.S. The range reaches an elevation of 7,162 feet at Edgar Peak and is home to the Mitchell Caverns Natural Preserve.

Edgar Peak Suspended



Edgar Peak (San Bernardino County) resides in the Providence Mountains State Recreation Area. The staff there has communicated to several DPS leaders and Management Committee members over the past several months that the entire area is closed to cross-country travel. As there is no legal way to access the peak, the Management Committee has voted to suspend it until the area is open. Neighboring Mitchell Point can be accessed legally via DPS Route D only. Please do not use Mitchell Routes A, B, or C as these travel within the State Recreation Area. The Mitchell Caverns are now open but require advance ticket purchase on-line.
