The San Bernardino National Forest has some great places to hike with various skill levels.

Great hiking can be found on the San Bernardino hiking trails. One of the main reasons hiking is so popular is the array of foliage. San Bernardino mountain range is only one of three mountain ranges in the world that runs East and West in a Mediterranean climate. This Mountain Range has a variety of unique eco-climate zones. The temperatures in the area are usually 15 to 20 degrees cooler than the valley below. Come up and get some of the best exercise known to humans: a walk in the forest! If you would like to enjoy the San Bernardino hiking trails with a group, scroll down to the bottom of this page and find the Mountain Top Hiking Club hiking schedule.

Check out the hiking trail map below. We suggest you start with the Heaps Peak Arboretum interpretive trail so you can learn about our forest. It will make the rest of your hiking more interesting. Most trailheads are marked by a brown post with a forest service number on it.
