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.

beautiful trail, easy to moderate, I hiked it after 2 months of back surgery and I did fine. Super nice hot springs. just make sure you drive up east from Mariana Ranchos and not south, the road is so much better in the east side.

My star rating is solely based on my dislike of downgrading a trail I've not fully seen. Attempted to make this peak yesterday with my dog. The first few miles were alright. Then I ended up knee deep in snow drifts. When my dog sank through the snow we turned around. Just a heads up, if you plan on making this peak right now, bring your snowshoes and leave your furry friend at home.

Such a fun trail to hike with our four kids. The trail head is tricky to find unless you know what to look for-hint-fallen branches creating a small path. The beginning is icy and slippery: we visited in mid January.

Despite this trail’s suggestion that an encounter with the elusive panther of the north could take place at it’s summit, the only animals we saw were fuzzy friendly dogs. The trail is generally south facing which made for alternate patches of mud and icy snow on our hike in early January. The trail is wide and well marked offering several impressive views of the lake before the summit.

There’s piles of trash at the beginning which is sad to see. About 15 minutes in the trail there is a few washed out ruts that may require high clearance or 4WD. Furthermore, trail road all the way with a few rocky sections (not boulders) and icy to snowy roads. Most of the way up is one lane with few open turns if there’s any vehicle that need to pass. Other than that it’s a scenic drive up.

Beautiful trail, beautiful views. Wore micro spikes on some portions, although they are not entirely necessary. Single leaf piñon, Sierra junipers, and canyon live oaks in some portions. Some of the junipers are quite large and very beautiful.
