Highlight: 1N34 San Sevaine Road
1N34 San Sevaine Road is located in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest. The trail runs east to west on the south-facing slopes between Mount San Antonio (Mt Baldy) and the Cajon Pass. The views into the Inland Empire are spectacular where you can spot the ocean on a clear day. This trail has somewhat unusual seasonal closures to protect important fawning habitat for mule deer, a Forest Service Management Indicator Species. You will not find this trail open between March 1st and Labor Day. Another highlight of this trail is the Joe Elliott Yellow Post Site near the end. Joe Elliott was the Superintendent of this forest from 1929 to 1935. Southern California's largest conifer tree was also at this campsite, 23 feet in circumference and 140 feet tall but had to be taken down for safety reasons.

Dennis Clark

Mapping Crew - California and Idaho

Dennis Clark was born in Los Angeles in 1942 and after 76 years of living in So Cal he moved to Emmett, Idaho with his wife Patricia, has four adult children with many grand and great grandchildren. He has loved the outdoors since his Cub Scout and Boy Scout days while camping with the family. He's an archer, hunter and fisherman but no longer wishes to harm animals. He has been involved with photography since the 1960's. He became more of a serious hiker in 2010 when he started Geocaching and has hiked the three tallest peaks in So Cal, Mt San Jacinto, Mt San Gorgonio and Mt Baldy, along with most of the lesser peaks in search of caches. Geocaching started his love for the USFS Trail system as he used the trails frequently to get to certain trailheads. He had a 2002 Ford Ranger 2wd and its amazing where that little pickup took him. In 5 years of weekly geocaching he was only stuck once in some Palm Springs sand. His 2016 Wrangler Sport Unlimited was purchased in 2015. He has become quite lazy in the hiking department as he can now drive to most locations. He's looking forward to posting some trails and don't hesitate to ask him for any help you might need.
