“This trail offers outstanding camping and opportunities for incredible panoramic views.”— Tom Robson
Columbine Camp (water usually available-8,000') is 4.7 miles from the trailhead just beyond Manzanita Flats. The camp is to the right (south) of the trail and .7 mile and 300 vertical feet below it. Two miles beyond Columbine Springs Junction is Limber Pine Bench Camp (9,200'). Water is obtained from a spring .3 mile beyond the camp.
Two and two-tenths miles further beyond Limber Pine Camp located on the San Bernardino Peak Divide Trail is San Bernardino (10,624') and San Bernardino East (10,691') Peaks. Another two miles east along the Peak Divide Trail is Trail Fork Springs (water available near trail junction-10,400'). The San Bernardino Peak Trail and the Divide Trail both offer outstanding views in all directions. The flatlands of the Inland Empire lay nearly 10,000 vertical feet below Limber Pine Camp and the trail above.
The initial climb through oak trees and chaparral is very beautiful, with views of the San Gabriels, Santa Anas, and the Santa Ana River Valley. Once you get past San Bernardino Peak, it's somewhat monotonous rolling hills, and because of the rounded shape of the ridge there is not usually a view.
