Trail Information

Highlights

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.

The gatekeeper was closed. There was no signage as to why it was closed, so hopefully, it opens again soon. I will say on the trail up to the gatekeeper that there is a lot of trash from people shooting guns. Remember to pack it out.

Just drove over there and checked it’s open trucks and trailers were there and unloaded so I’m assuming they were out riding
