"Looking north from San Bernardino, the outline of a huge arrowhead is emblazoned upon a hill called Arrowhead Peak. By further remarkable coincidence, the arrowhead points directly down to a hot spring at the foot of the mountains. Cahuilla Indian legend says that the arrowhead was shot from the sky by the God of Peace to point out a new homeland where the tribe could live safe from war-like neighbors. The pattern is created by a large area of granite rock just beneath the surface that prevents bigger plants from taking root. The small shrubs stand out in contrast to the greasewood and larger plants in the surrounding soil, giving the appearance of an arrowhead." Read more
