Castle Rock Trail - 1W03 is a 1.2 mile one way hike with 770 feet elevation gain. Located 21 miles east-northeast of San Bernardino California. The trailhead is car accessible. May and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.

At the top of the ridge is an impressive granite rock out-cropping and the source of many tales and local folklore. If you trust your rock climbing skills and can climb your way to the top of the rocks from the north side, the view of the lake is wonderful. The best part of this hike is that it’s downhill all the way home.
