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.

3N07A trailhead splits off to the southwest from 3N32 - Union Flat. The trailhead is hard to see and looks almost like a narrow path to a dispersed campsite.
A tight little spot next to Coyote Crag, The Squeeze will make you second guess what you are doing as you inch through it. At only six and half feet wide, your vehicle will be sandwiched in between two large rock formations that are aching to do some damage to your rig. For the harder line and greater thrills, travel east to west. When traveling this direction, you will have an unexpected slight tilt towards the drivers side that gets the heart pumping. When this happens most drivers over compensate and drive right into the passenger side rock.
This is the down hill articulation spot along the trail. It can make for very good action shots.
