Trail Overview

The Thomas Hunting Grounds Trail (1N12), often also referred to as the Morton Peak Trail, is an easy dirt road that takes you from the chaparral and shrubs of Mill Creek to the oaks and pines of the San Bernardino National Forest before dropping you in the town of Angelus Oaks. The Thomas Hunting Grounds themselves offer yellow post sites for dispersed camping, and the Santa Ana River Trail offers hiking for those interested in traveling by foot. Pay attention and be mindful of others as this road is popular for hiking and mountain biking as well as 4x4 and dual sport riding.
