Crab flats rd. Nice scenic fire road. If you need more info PM me and I will give you exact directions. We did one in the snow and the ladies loved it.

Crab Flats, Jacoby Cyn, or Gold Mountain.

Gold Mountain has a few obstacles, but nothing a stock Jeep can't handle. Probably want rails for it. Jacoby is right where Gold Moutain ends, so a good combo.

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)

Thanks for all the replys. Looking over the trails that's in the offroad book to make a game plan.

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.

I did Clark's peak. It's so easy I think I had more adventure climbing hills from a Victoria secret catalog.
