The Shandin Hills are a low mountain range of the Transverse Ranges System of Southern California.

Geography

The hills are located within the City of San Bernardino, in southern San Bernardino County.[1]

The Shandin Hills are separate and south of the San Bernardino Mountains foothills, and not as high in elevation. The dominant mountain of the hills is Little Mountain, at 564 metres (1,850 ft) in elevation.

I-215 passes through the mountain range via the Shandin Pass, connecting not only the University District and Downtown San Bernardino, but also the South and North San Bernardino Districts.
