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.

Great views and it helped having trees for shade when we needed it. We got up partial way in our car and hiked the rest. Volunteer rangers at the top were really friendly and loved talking about the terrain. I highly recommend this hike.

easy hike, not too many people were there which made it nicer.

I just hiked the section from Glass Road to Thomas Hunting Grounds. This is a very pretty section of the trail with a lot of diversity. Several pretty stream crossings. Not great for those afraid of heights though because some sections have a steep drop off combined with a narrow trail.

Important to note: the trail is severely eroded on either side of Schneider Creek. After feeling unsafe in a couple spots and seeing more up ahead, we ended up traveling down Schneider Creek to Middle Control Road. There was a sign indicating this coming from west but not the east. Best to stay on Middle Control Road for this section, as it closely parallels, until this gets fixed!

First time taking the lifted 4Runner out. No water in August, but some technical areas. No scraping of the vehicle. In 4 High most of the time, put it in 4 Low on one incline, and one decline. Took 2N75 back to Arrowhead to make a quick trip back to the house.

Awesome trail.. I recommend heading up early due to parking and crowds. It has a beautiful view once you hit the top. I would totally do it again.

Nice hike. More easy than moderate. Many people seen wearing only very simple shoes. Than it can't be very difficult. Great views but the lake disappointed a little.

Nice shaded trail but steep to get to falls. Hard to find trails or where to park.

I love this....

Decent hike with a small waterfall. It’s usually filled with younger people there chilling. I would say the easier route is when you see the bridge don’t go on it. Rather before taking a right to the bridge go left on the other trail. It’s faster. It does have a steep trail at the end but overall fast. If you cross the bridge you will have to get wet and it will take longer.

Great trail, well constructed and maintained. A push for this 71 yr old

A beautiful water fall.

Map ends in the middle of the highway, no trailhead no parking no signs, nothing.

Fun hike, great views.

it's not a very long hike like every one stated but when you need to go down to get to the falls its very scary. very slippery and big rocks all around. I had a very hard time coming back up, not physically, mentally I probably wont go back because the place was nice but not worth my height freight. younger crowd uses this place for a drinking and party zone just fyi. it was alright. and you dont need a all wheel drive to get to it, it's not that serious. lol

Good hike given the proximity to LA.

Nice short hike with some water to get your feet wet. Family friendly with lots of shaded areas to relax.

I did a shorter version of this hike (5.7 miles total) that begins at the junction of Polique Canyon Road and the PCT (as described in John Robinson's "San Bernardino Mountain Trails" book and by other reviewers on this page).

In addition to a shorter overall distance, my route from the PCT to the summit was slightly different from what's shown on this page. At around 2.3 miles, I hiked west on an overgrown road (shown as 3N80 on this map) to a use trail that travels south to the summit. This entire section from the PCT to the summit is the hardest part of the hike, as it's very steep and the trail is faint. There are ribbons and cairns that guide you though.

The view from the summit (a pile of rocks) isn't that great, so follow the ribbons south of the summit about 100 yards to a lower outcropping of rocks. The view from there is incredible.

love this trail. I've both hiked and MTB it

great trail. alot of fun. not too hard

Lots of rocks, would recommend hiking shoes and water shoes for when you get to falls. It’s really nice though, I’m for sure going back.

Very short and easy trail. Very pretty, but be careful of falling pinecones. The animal foot prints were very cute. It says no dogs, but it was a dog ok trail. We did see dogs there. Definitely will go there again.

Great hike, did it backpacking over 2 nights 2.5 days. Did a bit of the scenic route so it was more like 32 miles or something. Amazing adventure, first night camped at cucamonga second night on baldy. Met some great people made amazing memories and overall had one of the coolest experiences I’ve yet to live, 10/10 recommend. Did it early June and the weather was good, being like 10L of water if your doing this in one day though!

A nice hike with family. Had fun climbing on the rocks!

best mountain ever

We had such a great time. No problems just a little rocky in some areas. I drive a stock Xterra pro x. I would like to come back and do it again when it snows.

The trail was nice, and had a lot of shadows. But the entrance was hard to find. You have to go in front of the camp, then follow the pavement until you see a dirt road.

What an awesome experience! Got to take my 3 year old and 5 year old out in the rig today and had a blast! Honestly I stayed in 2wd for 97% of the trail. Gets pretty rocky in some sections but overall definitely worth checking out!

We didn't make it all the way before we turned around, but almost. it's a great hike, not very difficult. We only saw a couple other hikers the whole time. Planning on doing it again and going the whole way.

Great hike, took the entire family, lots of shade
