Big Bear Aug 23

A couple of us are headed to Big Bear on Aug. 23rd to run Gold Mtn. and Jacoby Canyon. After that want to run Horse thief flats because we have never done this trail.
We'll meet at the Big Bear Discovery Center 40971 N. Shore Dr.
Fawnskin around 9:00-9:15 and head out at 9:30.
This is a good place to meet (and they have clean bathrooms).

All are invited to join us and we always have a great time.
We will be on CB 15 and will have lunch somewhere on the trails.

Let's do this!!!

Any sort of minimum equipment recommendations for those trails? I was told Gold mountain is pretty easy, but know nothing about those other two. Thanx!

Yeah Jacoby is a fun canyon with nice views not difficult. I have not been on Horse thief flats but don't expect more than some off camber spots.
The main reason I want to run Jacoby is to lead into Horse thief flats.

Stock vehicles with a little lift and maybe some spotting over a couple obstacles on Gold mountain but other than that just a nice day in Big Bear

I know seems too long to wait. Maybe we need to get up there sooner.
Two runs in August...just saying. Sound good?

I just installed Metal Cloak control arms. I need to test them out and see how they flex. Should be a good run for it.

Put me down as coming. Missed your last one earlier in July. These three trails run together are a good mix of easy to moderate and make for an enjoyable day on the trail.

Great Rick and welcome to WF. We will see you up there. So Cal is a very active forum. There is always something going on and you will meet a lot of great people.

This goes out to everyone who is responding to this run. We will have a blast! and I'm not smart enough on this forum stuff to combine quotes and all that to cut down on too many of my responses.
But keep all those posts coming. I may not understand much about computers but I do understand a good time in the mountains on the trails.

Let's do this!!

Hey there..You are probably right about the first obstacle on Gold Mtn.

I hope this run does not bore you though cause I'm not sure there will be much 3-wheeling on this one :-)

Maybe a scouting trip, the JPI TRAIL?

We can talk to Stan and see if he knows some good trails?
Holcomb? Disphan?

Everyone all the trails are on Youtube if you want to view
