Cleghorn Ridge Trail is a combination of two parallel trails, one difficult and the other easy that intersect at several points. Beginning at Silverwood Lake, California Hwy 138 Google Map this trial offers ridge top views over Mount Baldy and ends at I-15 Cajon Pass exit 129 Google Map or back to Hwy 138 again Google Map The difficult trail runs from Silverwood Lake entrance to this intersection, the rest is easy.

The roughly graded route in this trail is suitable for medium clearance 2WD in dry weather. The US Forest Service has designated this trail as 2N47.

There is a separate 4WD trail (marked as X2W47) that runs parallel to the main route and is smaller. This one intersects the main trail often and has a rating of "difficult". The good news is that drivers are able to view the route beforehand and can choose the sections they want to leave out. The start of the trail has an easy rating which gets tougher as you move towards the top of the Cleghorn Ridge.

It is advisable to use a smaller vehicle as the less difficult areas too require good wheel articulation and placement between boulders and obstacles.

Drifters 4x4 Club, a local 4WD club, looks after the basic trail maintenance.

See it on Google Earth opening the kmz file.


This is a good trail for camping, picnicking, boating, fishing and recreation in general.
