Dec 22 - Jeep Run - Big Bear

I'm getting some much needed work done on my jeep. If all goes well December 22 will be my first run with the new mods. As of now, I have not decided on the exact route, but I'm thinking something in or near Big Bear. Anyone interested is welcome to join me. I will post more details as the date gets closer...

Sounds like a good run. I'm headed up there on Saturday and starting with Gold Mtn. I might have to try some of what you suggested.

Hi Dan, I would like to join you but I will be getting my trailer and bike ready for Glamis going the 26th through 1st so need to be pre-paired.

I was up in the area of 2no1 last weekend and found a few locked gates. One of the locked gates was by the Juniper Springs Group Camp Ground that I recal. I am under the impression that some of the summer trails are closed for winter so it may be a good idea to contact the ranger station before picking a path.

Looking at the pics they posted on the Crab flats run, it looks like shady areas were 6-12 inches and sunny areas were almost almost bare. I would think most of the trails will be hardpacked snow or a muddy mess with Low temps...

Dec 22 Jeep Run - Silverwood

Due to the fact I don’t know the trail conditions in Big Bear I have decided to do option #3 on Saturday Dec 22. Here is the plan:
-Meet at McDonalds in the Cajon Pass off the 15 freeway and highway 138.
-At 9am we will all caravan to the Silverwood Dam trailhead, where we will air down.
-We will be taking 2017x up to Pilot Rock.
-We will return to highway 138 via 2n37.
-Anyone just wanting a short run can break from us at this point.
-For those who want more fun, we will be doing Cleghorn (2n47) backwards (ie 138 in Silverwood to the 15 freeway).
I would say this is a moderate run with lots of bypasses. For those who want to join us, we will be on CH 04. Hope to see you there…
