Trail Information

Highlights

A short but exciting off-road trail, 3N07A is a great little trail that offers a unique obstacle at the Coyote Crag rock formation in Holcomb Valley near Big Bear Lake, California. If you have a good spotter, or your vehicle is rather narrow, you will likely squeeze between the boulders from which this trail got it name with no problems, but if you get off the line just barely, well you might lose a mirror or worse, add some character the body of your vehicle. Needless to say, when passing through Holcomb Valley or if you are out exploring 3N16 – Holcomb Valley Road, make sure you swing through and enjoy the natural beauty of this amazing, moderate difficulty trail.

If you looking for a great short trail to test you 4X4 out on this is the trail for you. i completed this trail solo and if you run this trail in reverse you can jump right into little john bull.

My second time here. Such a marvel to behold with the scenery around Coyote Crag. Nothing overly difficult here but a lot of fun and very scenic.

Awesome trail! Not very difficult at all but is a lot of fun. Plenty of opportunities to flex over on some pretty decent sized rocks. The Squeeze is legit... nice and tight! Couple of ledges to come down or up on ( Depending on direction of travel ) that if you're running stock you may rub a little but nothing major. So many places to camp along the route so definitely a place to visit if you're looking to spend some quiet time away from people. Definitely a must do if you're in the area.

This, so far, is the best trail I have been on... if only it was 5 miles long! As a reviewer earlier said, the "main squeeze" is just that, but I noticed several other squeezes to be navigated as well... just not as challenging. The scenery was absolutely amazing, being amongst the Coyote Crag and its forest. Breathtaking beauty. The big drop off caught my hitch, but no harm no foul. I cant wait to go back to this trail again... loved it!

The Squeeze, has two very unique challenges -the squeeze between boulders and the small steep dropoff. As yesterday 1/17/22 both were VERY Difficult. We ran it from Union Flat access to Holcomb Valley (East /West) Firstly you must navigate thru an 36 inch deep water hole on Union Flats. We have a raised (2.5 inc h/37 inch tires) , Rubicon 4 dr. We had to keep faster than desired momentum thru while making sure we did not drown the engine. (No snorkel) We managed but inexperienced drivers may have a difficult time and if you had to winch out it would have been underwater. The mud and ice made precision adjustments quite difficult in order to get thru the boulders. Me managed only with an experienced spotter and a rock under tire so jeep didn't slide into the boulder. In regards to the drop off it has worn to about 3 foot drop etc. (step on 2.5 feet step two) (again ice 1030 am) . We spent 45 minutes building rock and log bridge in order to make it down. My rubicon had an easier time BUT again experienced driver and spotter. The stock rubicon would not have made it without the build. MOST IMPORTANTLY, had a ball and learned a ton.
