Big Bear Jeep Trails | California
Scattered throughout the San Bernardino National Forest, you’ll have a chance to explore trails from mild to (moderately) wild.
Big Bear is rockin’ all year round! During the winter the trails are caked in snow, and summertime brings warm temps with cool nights – perfect for staying at one of the many campgrounds maintained by the forest service. Be sure to bring bug spray, and lots of sunscreen.

This was the most interesting day on our Adopt-A-Trail yet.
We started Saturday morning and we cleared and trimmed trees and brush from 2N84B and 2N84A.
We headed out with 5 jeeps for a Big Bear night run.
Our first official 2N84 trail run as a group with Greg Hoffman was definitely extremely memorable.
The first ever MJR Adopt-A-Trail workday was a great success. Eighteen volunteers worked all day clearing brush, culverts, trash, logs and other debris from the trail.
Another beautiful day in the San Bernardino National Forest.

The trip started with our first run over the newly revamped Deep Creek/Dishpan Springs trail. The lovely concrete bridge now stands at the old water crossing.
The weather ended up perfect, as usual in California. We started out at Green Valley Lake on 3N16 and made our way toward Holcomb Creek Trail.
