YUCAIPA RIDGE ACCESS
Much of Yucaipa Ridge is owned by the Wildlands Conservancy. The usual
car shuttle route starts at Vivian Creek Trailhead and finishes at Bear
Paw Preserve. Bear Paw Preserve is also a good trailhead for a simple
hike to Allen Peak. You must make arrangements in advance. The following
information was current as of summer of 2010. Please send any updates
HPS Mountains Records Chair.
- Call Evan Welsh at (909) 790-3698. He manages the Oak Glen Preserve
and Bear Paw Preserve for The Wildlands Conservancy.
- He sends an e-mail that contains a liability waiver form. He asked that
the leaders fill, sign, and mail back their own individual forms. The leaders
then turn in each participant's form to the resident at the preserve on the
day of the outing.
- Call him back on the Friday before the hike to get the current gate code,
if one wishes to park next to the bathrooms.
