Trail Information


2N93 Wildhorse Meadow is in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest, southeast of Big Bear Lake. There is dispersed camping throughout this trail, with 2 yellow post sites on 2N93F Wildhorse. Also on this trail is a designated shooting site at 2N93G Lightning Gulch. It's obvious where Wildhorse Meadow gets its name when you drive between waypoints 7 and 10. The meadow is lush and green and bordered by pine, oak, cedar, and elm. Bring your family, picnic lunch, and camera for a day of 4wd off-road fun.

Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

The only difficult portion of the trail is at the very beginning. There are a couple of rock gardens that gives this trail its 3 rating but after those I would say the rest of the trail is a 2. Very scenic overall with good camping and access to other trails.

Were staying in the Moonridge area and had time to kill. Drove up Sand Canyon until it tied into 2N93 and ran the trail backwards based on this writeup. Trail was very easy going and in fact we never put it into 4-wheel drive. We were going to have lunch at the yellow post site but someone had beat us to it so we ended up having lunch at the end of Lightning Gulch. The meadows were showing signs of the drought and the grasses were starting to turn brown. At the shooting site in Lightning Gulch we picked up all the spent shotgun shells left on the ground and then enjoyed lunch before continuing on. I had the new Trail Offroad app on my phone and was using the "Follow" feature. My wife loved the face that the waypoints scrolled by as we drove past the spot and she was able to read about each. If you haven't downloaded the app give it a try. (Only works on IOS at this point).

My friend Robert was my trail backup when I lived in California. He is doing an excellent job of running the trails and providing much-needed Trail Reviews, check out these from 9/1/20 and 8/3/20
