Trail Overview

Rugged Forest Service road that connects the East side of Big Bear down through the San Bernardino National Forest to the desert community of Rim Rock. The environment changes from Pine forest to a dense Joshua tree forest to the desert floor as the trail drops over 2,000' over almost 20 miles. There are numerous OHV trails that spur off of Burns Canyon Road to the West. This road is impassable during winter.

Some rocky technical sections that require 4x4. Trail is easy as you get closer to Baldwin lake.

1/3 of the trail is rocky but I saw a stock TRD OR Tacoma do it with a couple of their Jeep friends. The views were pretty enough!
