These mountains are amazing! In the middle of the flat desert these beauties just pop up! Never expected to see such awesome peaks in Phelan! Worth a look!

These rocks are to be found off west side of I-15/HWY138 in the Cajon Pass. The old Morman trail from SLC to LA passed by here. It is easily located. If you hike the trail TAKE PLENTY OF WATER and WATCH FOR SNAKES!

Close by just off I 15 and Hwy 395. Park, be sure to lock your car, anywhere you want. Bring your camera.

These are some really big rocks! We wanted to drive into the fire station / parking area and take the footpath to view the rocks up close, but the gate was closed when we were there. So we just saw them from Highway 138. My...More
