San Bernardino National Forest

Most people know of San Bernardino only by the lyrics in a song "Route 66" and unless you live in the Inland Empire, you most likely avoid this big city at all cost. Traffic can be bad, shopping can be dangerous and crime can be unpredictable. (Crime rate here is more than double the national average.) Generally visitors just pass through the area, eager for the mountain destinations located just up the hill.
