Truly a mecca in the hustle bustle of Southern California!  The Running Springs area offers small town living yet is only 20 minutes from San Bernardino, 40 minutes from Riverside and 1 hour and 15 minutes from Orange County.

 

Historically a sawmill and logging community, the area is a refreshing mix of small A-frames and large full time homes located throughout the forested mountain.  Each small town in the area offers something special.

 

Running Springs has the most full time residents due to its easy access to "down the hill".  A cozy town of 3,000 people, it has all the conveniences without the traffic and tourist activity.  It has 2 markets, a bank, a post office, restaurants, hair salons, a day care center, churches and a variety of gift and antiques shops.  The only real tourist activity is soaking up the fresh mountain air!  Since the area is surrounded by forest, hiking is just minutes from anywhere and the large ski resort of Snow Valley is just 5 miles away.

Arrowbear is the neighboring community and is easily spotted by its huge beautiful boulders which decorate the landscape.  It's a tiny quiet community with few full time residents and many weekend cabins.  Residents and weekenders alike enjoy lovely little Arrowbear Lake, the ballfield and playground as well as hiking through the Deep Creek Canyon and Children's Forest.

Further up the road apiece sits the highest town in the San Bernardino Mountains.  Green Valley Lake at 7000 feet elevation offers clean, cool air year round, fishing and boating in Green Valley Lake, miles of hiking and biking trails, cross country skiing and a small mountain town with all the basics.

 

The biggest draw to the Running Springs area is very simply our small town life; a place to bring your family and offer them a peek of the way life use to be.

 
Education

Students in Running Springs attend class in the Rim of the World Unified School District. Elementary school students can attend class at Charles Hoffman Elementary or the 1-12 private school The Shepherds Flock Academy. The Shepherds Flock Academy is the only middle school in Running Springs (CEDU Middle School closed in 2005), but there are multiple choices for public education in nearby Highland and Lake Arrowhead. The same is true for high school; students must travel at least as far as Highland or Lake Arrowhead for public education. There are also good schools in San Bernardino, about a half-hours drive away. For higher education, there are several institutions in San Bernardino, including San Bernardino Valley College, CSU San Bernardino, ITT Technical Institute, Loma Linda University and California Baptist College. There are also plenty more schools the further west you head.
