One of the most famous landmarks in the area is the Arrowhead. Located in the San Bernardino Mountains just outside the city, it is visible for miles. The site measures 1,375 feet long and 449 feet wide. At first glance, it appears to be manmade. On closer inspection, however, the face of the Arrowhead occurs naturally. It is made of light quartz with short white sage growing around the area. The lighter stone and vegetation is in sharp contrast to the other, darker vegetation that surrounds it. Through the years, many legends have been attached to the site. One that has been handed down for generations is that the shape points to the hot springs below. It was believed that the springs contained healing powers. This caused people to think the area was holy ground. Regardless of what you believe about the site, it continues to be a landmark today despite forest fires which have caused erosion over the years.1
