Horse Riding & Camping

Choose from the following to find a site: Horseback riders near South Fork Meadows, San Gorgonio Wilderness, San Bernardino National Forest


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.
