High in the heart of the San Bernardino National Forest, 20 miles north of San Bernadino, Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area captures the eye and the imagination with vistas of snow-capped mountain peaks reflected on the lake. Silverwood Lake was formed by the 249-foot Cedar Springs Dam, which holds back the waters of the west fork of the Mojave River as it passes through the San Bernardino Mountains. At 3,350 feet, it is the highest reservoir in the State Water Project. The park features hiking trails, swimming beaches and designated areas for boating, water-skiing and fishing. The lake has trout, large mouth bass, catfish and bluegill. There is a marina with a launching ramp, boat and equipment rentals, and a store. The park has picnic areas, including three that can only be reached by boat. The lake attracts waterfowl, raptors and songbirds. Canada Geese and an occasional bald eagle can be seen in the area. Warm, dry breezes prevail during summer - with high temperatures averaging between 90 and 100 degrees from June to September. From December through March, rainy winter temperatures vary from the low 30s to the low 60s. The park is open Friday through Tuesday, from 7am - 5pm and is closed on Wednesday and Thursday.

Plenty of different paths to choose from

Awesome hike! Great views! The only downside is that a lot of people use it for off roading and it can get dusty.

fun trail but can get a little busy on the weekend. be mindful of oncoming traffic, don't go too fast. has side obstacles to try. it's fun to see all the jeeps do their thing.

Part of a 4 Jeep caravan, one of which was stock. Good run for everyone on the main road. Couple of us modified jeeps did some of the more challenging off shoots. 4 low should be good enough for many of the side shoots, but a couple are probably best done with lockers on too.

Fun ride, but bouncy for sure.

Great hike for young families or those who are new to hiking. Enjoyed a brisk walk with my German shepherds and my two boys. Beautiful environment.

This is a gorgeous drive that's not difficult for beginners. Beautiful views of the trees w/ Inland Empire on the south side (if there's no smog) and epic views of Silverwood Lake on the north side. If you want to continue north and get all the way through, this trail will connect and proceed down to Cleghorn Rd just west of the 138. Here's how. Near end of trail, take sharp right on 2n45 aka "North Spur," proceed downhill, take sharp left on 2n59 (west) and that road continues down to Cleghorn Rd. For double the fun, go left (north) on 138 for 1.5 miles and grab the west-bound Cleghorn Mountain Trail (2n47), which dumps out on Cleghorn Rd @ I-15. Great way to spend the day and safe for the kiddos.

I go about 9-10miles up this trail and it's so gorgeous, once you reach the top and get to the other side of the mountain where all the pine trees and wild life are it's amazing!
