Discover the best of San Bernardino National Forest with this authoritative guide to 100 unforgettable hikes.
Southern California’s highest and most rugged mountains are in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto ranges, in a unique region where wildly varied naturescapes—desert cactus and pine trees, snowcapped peaks and palm oases—are found in close proximity. With the Pacific Crest Trail weaving its way through the mountains and desert, there are endless opportunities to explore Southern California trails.
After more than 50 years in print, San Bernardino Mountain Trails remains the bible for Southern California hikers. This updated guide by veteran hiker and author David Money Harris contains new trips, as well as old favorites.

Eight old trails, especially in areas that have become overgrown after fire damage, have been replaced with recently built or more heavily used trails.
