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.

Did this the night of the super moon! This trail is definitely not a fire road. Tons of technical bypasses along the trail for someone looking for a challenge. They all lead back to the main trail at the end, pretty much impossible to get lost. There is a part where you first see the lake that someone spray painted a rock with “do not” in black. Make sure to walk down this trail first to ensure you can do it. There is a huge drop on the left side at the end.

This one is a good hike or a good ride. I live by Dart Canyon so I can hike/ride to Miller Canyon then uphill back.

I drove in 6.5 miles on Forest road 2N49. Then hiked to Cajon Mnt then Sugar Pine Mnt and Baily peak, along with two other unnamed peaks. 14.5 miles hiked. Awesome viwes all around.

I went up the firebreak in Miller Canyon and hiked the ridge that way. Hardest uphill trail, well in my top 5 for sure.

If you want easy stay on the fire trails. I got stuck in some really scary spots off the trail. If you can't tell which way to go, stop get out walk a little to see where the trail leads. Also you can watch YouTube videos showing you where to go. It helped prepare me... I am a noob with a stock jeep wrangler.

Had a good time on this easy trail. Headed up to Lake Arrowhead and had lunch with my family. Did it in a Tundra 2.5 lift. Put it in 4 high but never needed it.

Good Trail with alternates for various skill level. Only disappointment was the leg that appears to reach Silverwood Lake. The old Trail has a locked gate and a small sign that indicates it’s illegal and subject to fines. Great alternate challenges though, including the short leg to Pilot Rock. Fun day, especially late afternoon with fall colors.

Perfect balance of both. Nice cruising trail parallel with "oh shit" trails. You decide
