The mountains run for approximately 60 miles (100 km) east-west on the southern edge of the Mojave Desert in southwestern San Bernardino Countymarker, north of the city of San Bernardinomarker. The range is separated from the San Gabriel Mountainsmarker to the west by Cajon Passmarker, and from the San Jacinto Mountainsmarker to the south and southeast by Banning Passmarker.
