Drive into Lucerne Valley on a rugged and beautiful BML road. You'll start out in the heart of San Bernardino National forest south of Big Bear Lake, pass a handful of great forest service campgrounds and eventually drop onto this road and into the valley. Green-sticker vehicles are permitted on portions of this trail.
Take Highways 18 and 38 to the little town of Fawnskin on the north side of Big Bear Lake. Look for three fawn statues in the center of town that mark start of paved Rim-of-the- World Drive.
