Trail Information


2N30 Cloudland Cut Off 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 its shorter 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.

Trail is open and clear. Some mild pinstriping for a full size truck, maybe not for a smaller size truck. Some ruts bigger than a foot, but nothing unmanageable. Did most of it in 2WD, just put it in 4WD for fun. Great little trail.

We took Cloudburst to Cloudland to the overlook at the intersection. Great view of the valley. We spoted smoke on the hillside to the north and called in the fire; four aircraft came in and put down lines of phosgene and stopped the fire. Pretty neat. The road down to the highway was easy as it was down. Coming up in the heat would have been a little slower.

Fun trail! I’ve hiked this trail a few times and driven it 4+ times! With recent rain there is some off camber areas but nothing too serious! Until you reach the divide at the top to continue cloudland truck trail.

Did this, and a few of the off shoots, when we did the main trail/road. Saw the KFROG transmitter towers.

This trail was open and I did see paragliders. Very good time and you should check it out if you want a quaint trail to see.
