2N84 – Little Bear Spring

Trail Information


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.

Nice trail I couldn’t go to the end too much snow for me but it’s open I couldn’t see anything in the road to stop someone more used to snow

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.
