Highlight: 2N27Y - Rouse Meadow / Skyline OHV
Hill climbs, curvy off-camber stretches, moderate rocky patches and high mountain views make up 2N27Y - Rouse Meadow / Skyline OHV. This steep, narrow, twisty 4x4 trail is part of the network of off-road trails in the San Bernardino Mountains, just north of the mountain lake community of Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino National Forest. This makes for a great add-on to a Willow Creek Jeep Trail run and offers a little more challenge than most trails in the immediate area.
