Arrowhead Ridge

Many Experiences and Many Names

Arrowhead Ridge is known by many names, Indian Hill, Grass Valley Parcel and Eagle Ridge.   

Indian Hill gained historic significance as the site of the last battle between European settlers and Native Americans in the San Bernardino Mountains.
  • And after being sold to private owners by the United States Forest Service, Indian Hill became...Eagle Ridge At Lake Arrowhead.
  • And with that name close to 20 acres of the last remaining oasis of forest open space in the very heart of the mountains communities in Lake Arrowhead endured being very disturbed;  trees removed, roads built and earth moved.

Arrowhead Ridge, once part of the San Bernardino National Forest until 1998,  that had showcased the proud forest that once made this world-class alpine resort so famous and popular with Hollywood film stars and 20+ million Southern Californians was now home to bulldozers, huge earth moving equipment, retaining walls, cement, sand bags, and erosion.

Arrowhead Ridge, home of extraordinary attributes not found in the vast majority of the San Bernardino National Forest now found itself experiencing "blight" akin to an urban city....this wildlife habitat saw the bears, deer, the endangered southern rubber boa, and rare spotted owl flee along with bald eagles. 

You Can Help Us Restore Arrowhead Ridge for Wildlife Habitat and Public Enjoyment.

 

The pictures in this gallery show the damaged land that the San Bernardino Mountains Land Trust purchased to save from further destruction, the clean up of these lands and the building of trails.
