Overview

2N79A Penstock Ridge Spur is within the San Bernardino National Forest and is a pleasant escape with views of the surrounding hills and the majestic San Gabrial Mountains to the west. There are beautiful vistas at many spots along the trail dominated in the west by the almost 9000' granite peaks of Cucamonga, Big Horn, and Timber Mountain. This is an excellent trail for a beginning off-roader. Penstock Ridge Spur was built as a service road for the four power line towers along its length. Intersecting roads along the way can be explored and often lead to these towers. Shortly after starting the trail is a large concrete structure in the shape of steps whose purpose is a mystery and that local artists have used as a canvas making this a worthwhile stop to appreciate their work. Your dog can also enjoy the trail when kept on a leash.
