Route Description for Forest Service Road N22 Hike

If you are in search of a rugged adventure through the San Bernardino Mountains that will produce some lovely views of the surrounding area, then you will be sure to enjoy the Forest Service Road N22 Hike. Be sure to wear bug repellent and long clothes, as the route is fairly overgrown and there are a number of insects and plenty of ticks along the trail.

Setting out from the trailhead, you will pass by the fire station and make your way to the northwest, where you will quickly cross over the West Fork of City Creek. From here, the route will continue on to the northwest through the undulating terrain of the mountains.

Eventually, the road will narrow and become quite overgrown, so keep an eye out for ticks! Take some time to appreciate the surrounding mountain and forest views, before the trail bends to the southwest and climbs slightly further uphill to the endpoint of the route. At this point, you can head back along the same route to retrace your steps back into the trailhead where you began.
