pretty sure its closed. we were up there when it snowed and it closed just after. it won't be open until may or so.....

although we were just up in big bear and condition were pretty fun, but looks like they could get some rain or snow this weekend.

a little bit, the end was really icy in the morning and we were going to run it from end to start and back, but we couldn't get up due to the ice. so we decided to go to the beginning and run that part and it was fine. in the afternoon the ice had softened up but we didn't go over it.

I feel your pain; even tho I just wheeled 4 days and nights straight in Calico... A day of rest and I'm ready to go another 4

Miller closes like clockwork every year from early Novemeber through around Memorial Day weekend. We got lucky last year; as it opened up for us on that weekend...but she's closed now.

How wild or mild do you want is the question

Have done a bunch of trails
Holcomb Creek will be a little strange with rain but would be a real challenge (photo on profile is part of Holcomb )
John Bull is okay but you will get some rock rash
There are other trails that can be done towards BB Lake
There is also some good trails out by Ridgecrest went out there a month ago
Just depends on how far you are from where!

Okay nothing to bizarre but nothing to boring. Well I enjoy driving the jeep on pavement so nothing is ever boring!
The distance doesn't matter to me.
I have a 2.5rc lift and 31 a/t.
So a trail that won't slow you down! Haha
