Took a trail from Seven Oaks Dam in Highland to Hwy 38

Took the new Jeep and girlfriend out to break them both in on some easy trails.
I know the Jeep can handle it, the girlfriend is always scared....
I have never took this trail, but gates are open. Trailhead is West of Seven Oaks Dam on Greenspot Rd. In Highland. This is called Alder Creek Rd. or 1N16. It quickly gains elevation and has nice city views (better on a clear day). Nice view of the back of the dam. It met with 1N09 and I went East (going West will take you to Hwy 330 and the shooting area). A few creek crossings and nice weather today at 4000' to 6000'.

We continued East on 1N09. Crossed a few creeks and stopped at Santa Ana River. Water flowing good. Good lunch stop.

After the stop at the upper Santa Ana River, we were on our way out and we came by the cabin of "cop killer" Christopher Dorners final shootout. It is fenced off, but still there.

That's a good trail to take from hwy 330 to 7 oaks, then down 38 back to highland. Did you stop at the 7 oaks resort?

No, didn't stop. Just a quick drive for the girls and the Jeep. Still fun!

Man if she knew you posted that you'd be in so much trouble.

That's a fun trail that I would run when I first got my Jeep. Its scenic and the water crossing is cool. Nice pics!

Been on a few times very scenic and good kickback run. You can also head back up towards big bear and dumps you out behind the resorts.
