Highlight: 2N84 – Little Bear Spring
2N84 Little Bear Springs is a wonderful trail in the San Bernardino National Forest near Big Bear Lake California that is off the beaten path making it perfect for a day retreat or even a dispersed camping trip to remember. Because of the intermediate difficulty of the trail, a 4x4 is required on the trail to access the end of the trail where the spring used to run. Thus whether you are looking for a nice little off-road excursion or a place to get away from it all and a secluded camping area, think no further then 2N84.

Ran this trail over the weekend. Be advised that you WILL receive pinstriping. Also, stop at the end of the trail (GPS trail end) where there's still room to turn around. I made the mistake of thinking that the trail extended further only to find out that it didn't. There is no place to turn around at the top so you'll be forced to back down to the larger open area.

Mapping Crew - California

Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it. Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you." Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information. If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.
