There are two designated staging areas to service the area: Pinnacle Staging Area (on 3N34 east of Hwy. 173) and Crab Flats Staging Area (north of Green Valley Rd. off 3N16). The Pinnacle Staging Area (see map inset) includes rest rooms and a "Warm-up Track."
A little history: In the early days the San Bernardino Mountains attracted people because of abundant lumber. Several lumber mills were built in the area. A narrow gauge railroad was constructed to haul lumber down from the mountains. Gold was discovered in the Holcomb Valley area in the mid 1800's. Later dams were built to store water for the irrigation of the orange groves in the surrounding foothill areas.
