Horse Riding & Camping
Choose from the following to find a site:
One of the most pleasurable ways to see the San Bernardino National Forest is on horseback. Horseback riding is permitted on all National Forest roads and trails, except for nature trails. The Spitler Peak and Fobes trails in the San Jacinto area connect with the Pacific Crest trail and have spectacular views of the desert floor below. The nearby McCall Equestrian Park and Ribbonwood Equestrian campgrounds offer overnight camping. The San Gorgonio Wilderness trails are very popular and the Forest Service maintains the Heart Bar Equestrian Group Camp and Wildhorse Equestrian Campground nearby. Big Bear has a series of gentler trails which also connect with the Pacific Crest Trail.
