Overview

On the southern side of Big Bear, California, is a part of the forest that many off-roaders don't explore when thinking about a weekend off-road. This may be because the ski slopes keep this area closed in the winter, or it could be because the extensive named off-road trails are on the opposite side of the lake. Well, let's just stop this injustice right now. On the south side of Big Bear Lake is an extensive trail network that provides some of the best overland camping and scenic views in this mountain range. This is an excellent network of trails that are perfect for first-time 4x4 enthusiasts. These almost untouched views are extremely close to downtown Big Bear Lake. Thus, the next time you are in the area wanting a quick and easy trail to check out, think no further than 2N08 - Knickerbocker Trail and 2N51Y Coyote. The views at the top of Snow Summit are unparalleled​.
