Trail Overview

Big Bee Ridge is a deceiving trail at first because it starts as an easy gravel road with amazing views of the forest. The road then clearly ends and goes into a 4x4 section. Rocks, boulders, and washed-out sections only allow for a high-clearance vehicle to pass through. This is a very technical trail, having a spotter is helpful in certain sections. The pictures don't do justice to the difficulty level of this route. Rock sliders are helpful in certain areas as well. Once you get down to the end unless you plan on winching yourself up the trail I would advise going right on Mount Pleasant Rd. This road is also very technical and is the only way out of the forest. There are very deep water crossings and mud holes on Mount Pleasant Road. There are no restrooms anywhere in this area and the campsite is dispersed.

Difficulty

The trail rating states it perfectly. Rock sliders are suggested, 33-inch tires are suggested, and off-camber sections are where rollovers can occur. There are no deep water sections however in order to get out of this area you either have to turn around and go back up this trail or you have to forge two water crossings that could be higher than your doors. Very large rocks that could do damage to your differential. Due to the depth of the water on the next trail, I wouldn't suggest anything other than a high-clearance vehicle.
