The Canyon Explorer's Club had posted a nice write-up of East Fork, San Gabriel River: Ranger Station to The Narrows, but they took it offline in February 1999 and have lost the electronic version. You might be able to find it at the Internet Archive. (Thanks to Anthony Sebestyen for this information.)
