Trail Overview

Nestled secretly within the Rattlesnake Canyon Trail is Mottino Wash, a 1.8 mile rock crawling trail that will test both you and your rig! 80% of the trail are rock gardens that jump between the difficulty of hard and harder. There are no bypasses for these rock gardens therefore you will need to navigate through them. There are 4 notable extra credit options on this trail and each one is notorious for body and driveline damages. It is crucial to have a modified rig due to the need for high clearance and larger tires. Without any modifications the chances of making through are very slim but not impossible, at least without some major damages. So if you love rock crawling, strap in and get ready to take on probably the hardest trail in the Big Bear Mountain range.
