Trail Information

Highlights

At 19 miles long, this dirt road takes you from Fawnskin to Hesperia and is a popular dirt route up the north side of the mountain range. Along the route, there are many trails splitting off such as 3N93 (Holcomb Creek) and 3N16. While traveling on 3N14 on the south side, there are several shooting areas and campgrounds. Please plan accordingly when traveling this area because it can get very hot on the low side in the Summer and still be snow on the ground once you reach high elevation.

Trail Difficulty and Assessment

Trail Navigation

At the second most traveled dirt road in the area. 3N14 is a common byway to get into the Holcomb Valley area. Besides being a connector, this trail will also take you down the mountain heading north, dropping you halfway between Hesperia and Lucerne near Deep Creek. On the lower half of the route expect a rutted road, while on the upper half, expect mud and snow in the winter.

Used as an access road for a great day off roading in splendid high country.

The trail should be open now after being temporarily closed due to the related construction activity.

The trail is closed from 3N12 to 3N16 for 1 week. They are grading the road so they can put new bathrooms in at Big Pine Flat.

Drove the trail in the Ranger from Hesperia to Holcomb with a large group. Easy trail with some great views and scenery. A little ice near Holcomb but not a big deal. We'll be back soon with a smaller group to explore many of the side trails.

Had to run up to Hesperia so decided to take the scenic view back home down the hill by going over the mountain. Nice easy drive and a whole lot of fun getting her dirty in some puddles.
