    Welcome Tommy!
    Fawnskin works. Where do you usually go?
    Rick knows all the roads up there, he'll be online in a few hours.
    10AM good?

      10AM sounds fine to me. I usually drop the tow rig near the fire station and head up the dirt road there. I think it's 3n12, or 3n09, I dunno. But meeting there works fantastic for me!

      I usually run through 3N10 (John Bull), 3N93, perhaps 3N08 (Gold Mountain), but I'm up for anything.

          Hmm, I might be able to calculate a GPS estimate from MapPoint, let me look into that...

          Basically, Fawnskin isn't that big of a town. As you get into town, you'll see the post office on the left. There's a triangle intersection with a garage looking structure in the middle. The fire sation is on the other side of that (other side of the street too). Make a left at the first leg of the triangle intersection and look left. There you'll see a restaurant that's out of business. I park in their parking lot (dirt, leaves, etc).

            I dunno how you like your coords, so I'll list all three methods

            N 34.26955* W 116.94722*
            N 34* 16.173' W 116* 56.833'
            N 34* 16' 10" W 116* 56' 50"

                Here's a map too:

                If you're coming up from Apple Valley, are you taking the 18 up the backside? If so, you'll be coming through Fawnskin in the other direction. The firestation is toward the end of town, and it'll be a right turn for you.

                    That map is from Microsoft MapPoint. FANTASTIC software! It doesn't show very many off-road trails, but for on-road stuff, I don't think it can be beat.

                    I do have a GPS, but it's ancient. Doesn't even have a moving map! Can you believe that? haha. Anyway, when I bought it, it was the creame of the crop, but times have changed. I rarely ever power it up now.

                      CHANGE IN PLAN!
                      fawnskin is around the *wrong* lake! we apologize, but here's some new coords ... N34 14.913, W117 11.364 ... it's the Lake Arrowhead Village intersection with 189 and 173. Meet in the Village near McDonalds (mmm, breakfast). You can leave the trailer there or at the trailhead, which is right nearby. Looks like you can take 18 up the mtn. Let us know.

                        That's fine with me. Question is, where are we wheeling?

                          Hook Creek Road 2N26Y, to Dishpan Springs 3N34, which hits 3N16 at Crab Flats. From there, we can go where our Jeepin' hearts desire.

                            Holcomb Creek is easily accessible, 3N93, and has a really cool rock garden. (The pic at the top of this site!!)

                              Ah, I've never done Hook Creek, that I know of. Something new! I didn't know there was a way up to and through Dishpan Springs besides Deep Creek.

                              Sounds like fun.

                                Hook Cr. is just a faster way to get to the trail head. Dirt road.
