Perched within striking distance of Los Angeles, the San Bernardino Mountains offer some of the most popular day hiking and camping destinations in the area. Like the San Gabriels to the west, the mountain wilderness offers a forest enclave of juniper, Jeffrey pine, and ponderosa for the Angelino weary of the urban grind. Mule deer, bighorn sheep, mountain lions, and black bears wander the slopes up here among the mountain aeries and river valleys. Strap on your hiking boots and go for a walk in the woods. Here are five hikes to get you out on the trail!
