Limber Pine Bench


This trail has amazing views that begin very early in the hike. The route to Limber Pine Bench is one of the lesser known (and lesser traveled) view points in SoCal, providing a nice break from the more crowded trails like Mt. San Antonio.

The trail beings to climb up the final slope as you near the Limber Pines campsite. This is where weekend backpackers often setup camp with plenty of water and views year round. San Bernardino Peak can be reach farther along this trail if you so choose.
