Trail Overview

This is a great scenic trail in the Big Bear area. When run east to west, high clearance is recommended. If headed west to east, lockers would be required. Tall ledges and loose, rocky boulders could cause a rollover and possibly body damage and breakage. The trail is beautiful and runs through some of the older burned out sections of the forest. View of Johnson Valley and the surrounding desert abound.

Road from Fawnskin to Holcomb intersection is open and passable. Melting snow makes it wet and very muddy. Large water holes here and there some up to a foot deep. Larger tires and 4x4 recommend. The snowy views are beautiful.
