From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

San Timoteo Canyon is an ancient river valley that runs from south of Banning, California in Riverside County to a point just south of San Bernardino, California in San Bernardino County. It provided the Southern Pacific Railroad its entry route into the Southern California basin, and for a time in the mid 1950s was considered as one of three possible alignments for the path of I-10 as part of the Interstate Highway System program, although the central route through Redlands, California was ultimately selected.[1]

In 2001[2] a portion of the canyon came under management of the California State Parks. The park is not yet open, but is expected to provide hiking trails, horse riding trails, camping, and historic sites.[3]
