Hero: Georges Shortcut - Cougar Buttes
small-aa Icon
Minutes down the hill from Big Bear Lake, California, in Lucerne Valley is Cougar Buttes; A small section of the Johnson Valley OHV Recreation Area in San Bernardino County. The huge, light-colored rock formations here make for unique desert backdrops as you drive through the open trails of Cougar Buttes. From easy, soft sandy trails to technical, rocky desert canyons and dispersed tent or RV camping, Cougar Buttes has something for anyone from first-time off-roaders to experienced wheelers. Georges Shortcut travels through a short canyon in the northern section of Cougar Buttes. Dispersed camping locations can be found at either end of this trail. While this trail is easy, rock crawlers looking for a series challenge might like what they find partway into the trail.
