Lake Arrowhead, San Bernadino National Forest, Pinnacles OHV Area, Mountain Top Ranger District, Willow Creek Jeep Trail
Last Known Status
Tucked away behind a wooded residential area, this park offers several miles of smooth and fast trails, a large staging area with newer facilities and great scenery. Trails are marked and rated but not very challenging.
The staging area does not offer direct shade but amenities include loading ramps, BBQ grills, picnic tables, vault toilets and a beginners loop trail. An Adventure Pass is required here which which must be obtained before arrival since there is currently no self pay kiok. Passes can be purchased at nearby ranger stations and stores. Camping is permitted as long as an Adventure Pass is displayed.
