Trail Information

Highlights

2N40 Cloudland Truck Trail is on the south-facing slopes below the community of Crestline in the San Bernardino National Forest. It is an ideal trail for the new 4x4 off-road wheeler due to no obstacles and moderate length. The views of the Inland Empire are fantastic where you can see from the Banning Pass and Mount San Jacinto to the east and Orange and Los Angeles counties to the west including the Pacific Ocean. The real highlight of the trail is on Marshall Peak where the paragliders and hang gliders launch. When conditions are good they can fly for hours on the thermals and eventually land 3,000 feet below near the California State University at San Bernardino.

Went up for sunset and to check out the city lights. Was well worth it and timed perfectly! The hang glider people are nucking futs.

A shelf road with great views the whole way pretty much. This would be a great night trail for the views. Plenty of places to pull of and admire the sprawl. Did a few of the off shoots, fun. Good times.

Very fun and easy trail in my 2021 Cherokee Trailhawk. 4wd with decent clearance or rwd pickup should make it no problems. Some offshoots will require 4 low if you feel like playing. I took one offshoot in 4 low with locked diff and hill descent and the car handled it no problem. The only concern was unavoidable pinstriping due to overgrown vegetation. I don't mind but if you want to keep your paint pristine this is not the trail for you. If you don't mind the vegetation, this is a fun trail for daily drivers or more built rigs.

Easy serene trail. Can be done in 2wd, make note of areas where there is space as the trail is big enough for only one car, so someone will have to backup to an area to let another car pass if two are headed in opposite directions. Been there a couple times sometimes there are hand gliders other times its just you and the sound of birds.
