Trail Information


10 miles east of Hemet, Bee Canyon is in the San Bernardino National Forest and one of two access points off Hwy 74 for the many trails of the western Idyllwild area. This area is great for the local target shooters with the many side canyons. To the 4 wheelers, the short 3-mile drive connects you to East Indian Creek and San Jacinto Ridge truck trails. These connector trails will take you to Hwy 243 and Idyllwild.

Ran the trail in the Jeep for access from pavement to San Jacinto Ridge and Indian Mountain trail. Went past one group of target shooters in the first mile but saw no other vehicles. pretty easy trail, it could be done in 2WD, I used 4WD HI so I could disconnect the sway bar.

Trail is open, lots of folks out enjoying themselves this weekend in vehicles, OHV and in the canyons target shooting. Overall, short trail was super easy, there was some litter that was disheartening to see, but otherwise nice warm up before moving onto San Jacinto Ridge trail (5S09).

Graded route that can be done in 2WD. Some overlooks, but more as a route to connect to other trails. Not a scenic trail.
