    Hey OP, maybe while you're there you can show these "gangsters" how to aim: maybe then they'd hit each other for once, instead of some kid four blocks over.

    Burro Canyon Shooting area in Azusa Canyon. Azusa Canyon Rd is about 10 miles west of the Lytle Creek turnoff.

    Hey 38 SUPERFANATIC
    It all depends on what kind of firearm's you have.There are long range clubs at Lytle Creek,and they have a range master on duty.
    Thank you,
    Henry

    Head towards jackrabbit trail in Beaumont just off the 60/215. If you go up that road enough, there are some nice places to shoot and it's perfectly legal. Just make sure you shoot away from the roads and into the natural backstops there. PM me if you need more info. That's where I shoot.

    They closed that area down a few years ago, due to "fire danger". It has not been reopened for firearm usage.

    Lytle Creek is a good place to shoot. They have covered shooting areas and decent tables. Range officers are ok and fair.
    Here is a pic of Lytle Creek firing line. They have made some inprovements in target holding after this was taken. Anyway you need to be prepared to have your own target stands the ground is like rock and the wind can be wild.

    Maybe a little late but....

    I emailed the BLM out in the Palm Springs area and the lady that responded gave me some good info and a couple of places to shoot out there. I attached the email.:scrutiny:

    If you want to go to a free national forest range, the San Bernadino National forest has two ranges, one off of HW 38 and a second off of HW330. I believe the HW330 might still be closed right now because of rainstorm road damage, but their websites says though the gate to the road is locked, you may still walk in.

    Here's a link to their site where you can find out where to shoot.

    There was significantly more in the area you ask about 5-10 years ago.
    A large number of such locations are being shut down.

    One of the big reasons is the significant amount of trash left behind.
    Of those that remain it is often because of volunteer groups that "adopt" the location and go pick up several large truckloads of trash annually.
    However even then the trucks that transport the waste are often paid for by government or forestry services, in a state that has a government that is already not particularly fond of firearms.
    The volunteers make it significantly cheaper to clean these places up, but typically not free.


    So these places still exist, but they are rapidly diminishing in numbers even in remote areas.
    If you go please take more trash with you than you brought.
