    Directions to Trailhead

    The Indian Mountain Hike follows an easy to navigate dirt road that leads up to the summit of the peak for some pleasant views. While out on the trail, you will steadily gain elevation until you arrive at the top of Indian Mountain, where you can check out the surrounding San Bernardino National Forest landscape. Hikers should take note that there is little protection from the sun and plenty of bugs along this route, so be sure to wear sunscreen and bug repellent.

    Route Description for Indian Mountain Hike

    Whether you are after sweeping landscape views or simply want to get outdoors for some quality exercise, the Indian Mountain Hike is a good route to explore the natural beauty of the Southern California landscape. Be sure to keep an eye out for passing vehicles, as this route is also an OHV trail.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the southeast along the forest service road and pass through an area that is sparsely populated with trees. Here, the trail will begin to turn more to the southwest, as you continue to gain elevation along the winding trail.

    Eventually, you will arrive at the summit of Indian Mountain, where you can explore the area and take in the views of the surrounding mountains. From here, you can follow the same route back downhill to return to the trailhead where you began.

    Getting to the Indian Mountain Hike Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Indian Mountain Hike can be found along CA-243, just 1.0 km south of Lake Fulmor.
