Indian Mountain (OHV) Professional Reviews and Guides
"Indian Mtn. is perched amidst the chaparral on the western slopes of the San Jacinto Mountains. It is named for the nearby Indian Creek, which runs through the Soboba reservation. The approach along a fire road is unpleasantly hot in the summer, but on a crisp winter day, it offers a fine walk and an unforgettable view of snow-clad San Jacinto Peak towering above. Even if the fire road is blanketed by recent snowfall, the hike is straightforward so long as you have adequate footwear."
--David & Jennifer Money Harris, Afoot and Afield: Inland Empire (Wilderness Press).
"Indian Mountain rises to 5,790 feet over the western foothills of the range, oﬀering a splendid panorama over chaparral-coated hillsides and the ﬂat expanse of
San Jacinto Valley. This trip is a ﬁre-road walk most of the way, best done on a
cool, clear winter or spring day."
--John W. Robinson with David Money Harris, 100 Hikes in Southern California: San Bernardino Mountain Trails (Wilderness Press).
