The San Emigdio Mountains are a part of the Transverse Ranges in Southern California, extending from Interstate 5 at Lebec and Gorman on the east to Highway 33–166 on the west. They link the Tehachapis and Temblor Range and form the southern wall of the San Joaquin Valley. The range is named after Emygdius, an early Christian martyr.
The range is within Kern County. The highest point is San Emigdio Mountain at 7,492 feet (2,284 m). As with most of the Transverse Ranges, the mountains generally lie in an east-west direction.
