Interactive Map Directions to Heaps Peak Arboretum

From Highland Highway 330, come up the mountain and turn west onto Highway 18 in Running Springs for 4.5 miles and the Arboretum will be on the right side of the highway.

From San Bernardino Highway 18, come up the mountain and continue past the Lake Arrowhead turnoff (Highway 173) and Skyforest. Stay on Highway 18 for approximately 2 more miles and it will be on the left side of the highway.
