Join a Naturalist for a guided snowshoe tour in the San Bernardino National Forest. You will learn how to snowshoe, go for a guided trek through the forest, learn about how plants and animals adapt in winter and have some exploration time as well! Snowshoes, trekking poles, snack and water are included. Please wear warm clothing layers and waterproof boots or shoes. Tours are dependent on snow conditions.

Our guide will meet you there and the group will walk approximately 1/4 mile to start of the trail. Private tours can be arranged for groups of 8 or more.
