Heaps Peak Arboretum

Botanical Garden & Hiking

You’re invited to visit Heaps Peak Arboretum, a unique mountain oasis of natural beauty. The Arboretum is open dawn to dusk 365 days a year. Our information booth is staffed by a volunteer from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.

Nearly one mile long, the Sequoia Trail is an easy loop that descends gently and then rises slowly. Depending on your pace, it takes about half an hour to hike. There’s no fee to walk the trail, but you do need a valid recreation pass to park in the Arboretum’s Forest Service lot. Also, please keep a watchful eye on children, stay on the trail, ensure that dogs are on leash, and deposit all trash and pet waste in our receptacles.

The Sequoia Trail is easy for most visitors to walk, including families with young children in strollers and older hikers. Pick up a trail guide at the Information Booth when it's open or from the dispenser on the kiosk near the trailhead. Along the way, hikers will find such trees as the Incense Cedar, Sugar Pine, Knobcone Pine, Coulter Pine, Black Oak, Quaking Aspen, White Fir and Dogwood (renowned for its spectacular springtime blooms). Near trail's end is the largest grove of Giant Sequoias in the San Bernardino Mountains. They're not huge trees like those growing in northern California. Still, this stand of Sequoias, planted here some 90 years ago, is nothing less than majestic.
