Overview

Situated in the San Bernardino National Forest, 6S16 Cottonwood Truck Trail is nothing short of a scenic opportunity. With views of Little Cahilla Mountain, Lake Riverside, Anza, and Thomas Mountain. Nearby is the Bautista Canyon Road which was used by the Spanish during a 1,200-mile expedition from 1775-1786. This is a great trail for a first time off-road enthusiast or someone looking to go explore for a day in the cooler temperatures you'll find further up the trail towards Thomas Mountain.
