Overview

One of the must-do offroad trails in Southern California and maybe even the United States, 3N10 - John Bull is a legendary trail in the offroad community and offers an amazing rock-crawling experience to all users. Often used as a trial run for larger trips such as to the Rubicon or the Dusy-Ershim, this Jeep Badge of Honor trail will test a vehicle to its breaking point. John Bull features large boulders over 36 inches round, loose rocks that love to bend sheet metal, and big trees that seem to jump out of nowhere and kiss your vehicle, leaving behind body damage scars that make for epic campfire stories. If looking for a unique and challenging trail within Big Bear's Holcomb Valley, John Bull will certainly fill the void.
