Trail Information


Are you looking for a nice short off-road trail near Wrightwood to spend an hour or two?  Then Fenner Saddle Road is the trail for you.  This trail winds through the Angeles National Forest from Highway 2, over to Big Pines Highway N4, and brings you out at Jackson Lake, a popular day-use area, where you can picnic under shady pine trees and, if you are so inclined, go fishing.  Along the route are incredible vistas of the mountains and the Mojave desert to the north.
