they there folks. i finally got the gf to go on a outting in big bear. can anyone recommend a easy and short run for us. near the big bear lake area. plus my first time up there also. im waiting on my friends book of trails to look at.thanks in advance
x2 for Jacoby (3N61) ... If you run Jacoby first from HWY 18 it's more interesting and can lead into pretty much everything else ... it drops you onto Holcomb Valley (3N16) and its easy roads and scenic all the way to Crab Flats like Gunner suggested
or from 3N16 you can get to Gold Mountain (3N69 - great views of Big Bear) or Burnt Flats (3N02 - great views of the desert) for a little tougher roads like Suicideking suggested ...
there is also skyline drive (2N10) which is just all scenic grated roads behind the ski resorts ... but opens up to things like Clarks Grade (1N54)
Glad to help. Radar Rob turned me on to it and he broke the trail for us. But my wife and I Pre ran it without snow and it was a fun time on the trail. Glad she had fun and I hope she has many more adventures with you off road.
