Enjoy rock climbing, hiking at Mormon Rocks

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– Located off Interstate 15 in the Cajon Pass, the striking sandstone Mormon Rocks are impossible to miss.

Between A.D. 1200 and the mid-1800s, these rocks were home to the native Serrano Indians, who built villages of domed brush houses beneath the cliffs. Formed by grinding activity along the San Andreas Fault, the rocks are a popular spot for climbing, hiking, bouldering and wildlife watching. While you’re here, you can do a little trainspotting along the railroad tracks, or hike the 1-mile Interpretive Trail, which begins at the Mormon Rocks Fire Station on Highway 138.
