San Bernardino National Forest

Pilot Rock

Pilot Rock south of Hesperia, ca. Sanbernardino National Forest
A peak, 5,438 feet high in the San Bernardino National Forest, 18 miles south of Victorville, Ca.

'Pilot' was a favorite name with overland immigrants, prospectors, and surveyors, etc, for any landmark that would 'pilot' them in the right direction.

Pilot Rock would guide travelers toward the Mojave River and then to where the Old Morman Wagon Road left the river to descend the Cajon Pass.
