The wild lands of the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountain Ranges were designated a National Forest more than a hundred years ago. The Forest Reserve Act was passed in 1891, giving us the San Bernardino Forest Reserve, which became the San Bernardino National Forest in 1925. The San Bernardino National Forest as public land was set aside for the conservation of natural resources such as trees, water, minerals, livestock range, recreation, or wildlife. Today, the San Bernardino National Forest serves as southern California's outdoor year-around recreation destination, as well as providing valuable watershed protection. Drive the scenic Rim of the World Scenic Byway and Palms to Pines Scenic Byways to discover your local National Forest.

This is a real gem of a trail. It is fairly short and easy but you are rewarded with views of the alpine pastures of Little Green Valley, which are truly beautiful.

This is more difficult than “moderate.” To actually arrive at the summit and fire tower, one must hike about half a mile extra uphill beyond the end of the trail as it is listed here. It is a great hike if you want to see few people. The trailhead is a quarter mile up a dirt road that runs almost parallel to the highway. There are lots of gnats on this trail even in late October!

I really enjoyed this hike! The trail is hard during the 1st mile and the last 2 miles! 4.30 hours to reach the summit, 3 hours to come back and 30 min at the top enjoying the awesome view. I am thinking now to do it with snowshoes ❄️

Really Nice Trail. Well maintained. Perfect for jogging or walking your dog. Open views, everything is nicely spaced and it has great views of the lake and surrounding areas.

Great place for a family hike. You can make this hike easy or difficult depending if you do the whole trail or parts of it. Entrance and parking is free. One of my favorite places to hike.

I had an off day on this hike, and it totally kicked my butt. The views are beautiful, and the trail is very easy to follow, probably among the easiest I’ve been on.
