The National Children’s Forest is home to youth programs in environmental education and leadership. It was established in 1970 after the Bear Fire burned 54,000 acres in the region. The Children’s Forest has a staff of eight paid employees and over 200 volunteers who reach out to approximately 12,000 young people each year. The Interpretive Trail, redesigned by youth volunteers in 1993, is paved and accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. The short loop, also called Trail of the Phoenix, leads through pines and manzanitas and offers views of the central San Bernardino Mountains.
