Trail Information


6S22 Red Mountain OHV is the longest of the three OHV trails on Red Mountain, the others being 7S04 Juan Diego Flats and 6S89 Juan Diego. It is just outside the Cahuilla Mountain Wilderness Area in the San Bernardino National Forest. This trail along with the two sister trails are a perfect off-road experience for the new wheeler. The area is known for its gemstone mining and for the Red Mountain Fire Lookout at its end.

Its as Dennis described in his original review. After enjoying the Cahuilla Mountains from a distance we gave Red Mountain a try for a closer look and had a wonderful time on a beautiful warm fall day.

There is something just relaxing about driving your truck on the side of a mountain. I drove up this trail after hiking the Cahulla Mountain trail (round trip hike two hours 30mins that’s stopping a lot to take pictures). Easy trail any 4x4 vehicle could probably do it, it was a beautiful day.

Trail was open and clear. Fun little trail though it does appear Audry Lynn has been abandoned and the entrance caved in.

This is a scenic and easy trail to do if you happen to be in the Anza CA area. Note that once you are near the top, satellite maps will show adjoining trails that look interesting and take you further north; unfortunately, however, these happen to be ATV-only trails and are closed to 4WD vehicles. If you want to do more wheeling you will need to descent the mountain and traverse eastward to 6S18 (Hog Lake), 6S13 (Thomas Mountain), and 5S15 (Rouse Hill). 6S22 and the others mentioned should be open year-round unless there happens to be snowfall at a low elevation in the winter.
