Big Bear Holcomb Creek Trail 12/8
 
Anyone up for hitting up Holcomb Creek Trail Saturday and some cold weather camping at holcomb valley camp?

Holcomb is rated a black diamond by the charles wells book, not recommended for stock vehicles. Lockers, high ground clearance and undercarriage protection recommended. although I've seen jeep though with out lockers.

I should be able to make it. At least for a day trip... Too many cold nights on the ground from my army days haha. I'm in the Temecula area. What time are you thinking of meeting and where?

BeantownR6 12-04-2012 09:59 PM

probably at the trail head 10 am 3N93 and 3N14 just past hanna flat camp, or maybe in fawnskin at 930? have you been on the trail and know where it is? Let's see who else wants to go and can finalize a meeting spot.

I got to do Holcomb creek last month. It was a blast. The rock gardens do have some easier lines In there with the harder ones.

Holcomb creek is a really fun run especially when u start from the east & circle back around and do lower Largo then back onto Holcomb creek...just get started early ...it tends to get very busy ....like the 5fwy during rush hour..lol

I had plans to wheel on Sunday and had a friend back out so I'm in the same boat. I was planning on exploring the heartbreak ridge onyx point area off the 38. Already have plans for Sat but would be in for Sun.

BeantownR6 12-06-2012 11:04 PM

big bear is far enough for me id rather not wheel and drive home the same day otherwise id do Sunday.

turdhurdler 12-07-2012 12:08 AM

I feel bad. Our offer is still up if interested. Weather should be a little bit warmer there.

I might be up for something on the 15th. Also can't do this weekend.

turdhurdler 12-07-2012 04:44 AM

Well my back up plan just fell through. Just got called in to work. Will take most of the day. If you do go out, have fun and be safe.

Let me know if you're up for anything next weekend on the 15th. I'd do anything except Cleghorn (just did it twice in a row).

Yeah, I might join in on that run. Trying to talk my wife into going and bringing the kids. If she doesn't want to go, I may try to get something else together.
