rkwfxd IIRC Holcomb Valley - not Holcomb Creek - is a nice easy dirt road with about a dozen signs along the way at points of interest. Pretty sure I got a guide book at a ranger station that told about the area and significant events. But that was 18+ years ago with my infant daughter in a stock 94 4X4 Blazer. It was a fun day.

yomondo Clarks Summit and Skyline Drive on the south side of the lake are very scenic and easy, slightly more than a dirt road.

Baja1ab I'm quite fond of Jacoby Canyon for such a thing. I used to take my wife daughter through Jacoby when she was about 4 in our Grand Cherokee (2" lift). Heck, my in laws did it in their stocker 4Runner and my mother-in-law is NOT wheelin material.

Anyway, I like it because it is not just a fire road but it is still very easy, scenic and you still get that remote, deep in the woods feeling. I also always liked doing that one "backwards", from HWY18 up, then connecting with other roads and trails in the area. Look it up on a map you'll see what I'm talking about.

Good luck and have fun!

suicideking Do you want a fire road, or something a little more interesting?

Crab Flats is a good fire road to take. Jacoby is short, but slightly harder than a fire road. I think there's only one small section that would barely qualify as an obstacle.

I didn't go on the recent Horse Thief run, but read that trail is nice and pretty tame.

mountainneer Here are some trails out of the Guide to So Cal Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails. The attachments are 3 pages, I scanned out of the book.

Lots of trail reports -- theres a good one at a competing site,

Also, there are some easy ridgeline trails above the ski runs that are cool.

Easy, Scenic Big Bear trails?

I'll be in Big Bear with the family, I would like to find a trail that is scenic and easy that's suited for a 3 yr old to come along. Any ideas?
