The San Bernardino National Forest is the place for sweeping scenic views. The forest covers 823,816 acres, most of which is federal land, and is home to 440 wildlife species and thousands of plant species. The iconic Pacific Coast Trail (PCT), which spans from Mexico to Canada, goes right through the forest and is accessible via the Bradford Ridge Path. Deep Creek Hot Springs runs right along the trail with natural hot springs and a large, cold swimming hole to enjoy in any weather. If you’re feeling up to the challenge, continue your hike in either direction for as long as you’d like.
