Trail Information

Highlights

1N64A - Slide Lake is a wonderful off-road, 4x4 trail in the San Bernardino National Forest. Slide Lake is just one of the many beautiful trails in this Seven Oaks Canyon, including City Creek, Clarks Grade, and Radford. The Bear Creek Watershed at trails end flows into the Santa Ana River just 4 miles downstream on its journey to the Pacific Ocean. The beginning of Bear Creek is at the Big Bear Lake Dam spillway, 6 miles to the northeast. This trail is a gem for the dispersed campsite camper, along with it's connecting brother, 1N64 - Seven Pines. Be watchful of bear, mountain lion, deer and the smaller animals who make this area their home.

Definitely air down If you go here. Super bumpy ride not sure if it’s worth it but it’s beautiful when you get down

Easy trail with just a few minor obstacles, especially toward the very end of the trail. Very narrow all the way down with dense vegetation in some areas leading to pinstriping of our vehicles. Just as one of our group commented, "good thing nobody was coming down this trail, there's absolutely nowhere to pass," we encountered another group of vehicles coming down. Fortunately it was just as we were just reaching the top, so the group of about 8 vehicles in front of us only had to back up a hundred feet or so. We had two vehicles towing trailers so there was no way we would have been able to back them down nearly a mile. It is a beautiful place to camp though!

My friend Robert was my trail backup when I lived in California. I’m now mapping trails in Idaho. Robert is doing an excellent job of running the trails and providing much needed Trail Reviews, check out this review from 6/14/20

A narrow easy trail down to the river, up and back with not outlet at the bottom. I mean narrow. Ive never met another vehicle in the opposite direction and happy about that as there are few places to maneuver for space. Much of the trail is overgrown, providing beauty but also paint scratches. The trail ends at the bottom at Slide Lake a section of the river that at times floods the area. The river is easily reachable and very pleasant to stop at and have lunch. There nice spots for camping if you follow the tracks a bit north which have become a small creek. During deer season I have seen well established camps in this area. At this time no fires are allowed.

Easy trail only the beginning is Rutted. The rest is just easy stuff with the difficulty being your cars paintjob resisting those pinstripes. Really overgrown and honestly Slide Lake is ok. Prefer other spots around the area. Not worth it.
