Although one of my favorite, it's in Lucerne, not Big Bear.

Good suggestion though. If you're itchin for some new terrain, Cougar Buttes is freakin awesome! Also, there's bypasses for just about everything. It's a big playground.

The OP needs to get some sliders though. At the very least he can get tugged through some stuff, hopefully unscathed.

thedaringmove I repeat... I have no lockers or rocker guards haha. I don't want dents. I just want a good simple trail like GM about the same difficulty. Something to show off on

It's not that I don't have the balls, its that my jeep don't got the gutz haha. I have no problem spending an hour on one obstacle but have no money to fix any oops moments haha

Jacoby would probably be doable. Not really any obstacles, mostly a scenic trail. Very short too. In good weather, took under an hour.

Sick man.

Moabrubi No rockers I would consider dishpan when it's dry. I didn't touch my rockers on that trail. Even though lately I heard the waterfall is pretty tough. Who knows what it looks like now after all the weather, I made it up no issues with 32's. If you don't have sliders I do recommend staying away from Holcomb though, I used my sliders on Holcomb more then JB. I just got a 2" lift and 32's on a TJ.

Agree with this: I avoid Big Bear until the spring when all the snow melts. Even doing a fire road is a challenge in snow/ice. I wouldn't want to do any real obstacles until I can see what I'm driving on.

Stick to the lower elevation trails for the winter. Especially with no lockers or armor.

bullcrew Jb can be done no lockers but it will take a bit a clean line and spotter you will still be playing around on it trying to get through forget about it in snow though.

Holcomb creek is fun there's a couple spots that are Intresting overall its a fun trail and can definently be done with open diffs.

White mountain or pass is good there are go rounds for 2 main rock climbs that look like buggy trails more than wheeling trails lol but a really nice view of the valley floor below...

Holcomb would be fun in the snow, couple of off camber sections that if snowy could present a issue and those spots would be better with no lockers so the jeep doesn't push..

530ktm Dishpan is a pretty mild trail until you get to the waterfall and then it becomes very interesting. I have seen a lot of things going on at that point and the ground has a permanent smell of gear oil, so it has claimed many oilpans, etc. Holcomb is a nice trail as well but it does have some rock gardens to get through. All the trails up there are probably getting some snow now so not sure how good it would be at the time.
