For those who enjoy recreational shooting amidst the beauty of nature, the Arrastre Recreational Shooting Site 1 offers a designated space in the San Bernardino National Forest. This is one of the few places where visitors can target shoot in designated and signed areas. However, note that shooting is allowed at specific times due to fire danger ratings.

Key Features:
