Roberts Ranch Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Thanks to the crusading efforts of Descanso cabinetmaker Duncan McFetridge, affectionately known by some as the “Robin Hood of Cleveland Forest,” certain private inholdings in Cleveland National Forest near Descanso, formerly slated for housing development, were saved as permanent open space. One key parcel at the de facto west gateway of the Cleveland National Forest along Interstate 8—the former Roberts Ranch—became national forest land in the late 1990s. Where cattle once grazed contentedly, hikers can now contemplate spacious vistas of oak-studded grassland."
