Trail Information


***The trail is currently closed due to the Holcomb Fire, please reach out to the Forest Service if you are planning on running this trail for more details on when it will reopen (909) 382-2790 (voice)*** Jacoby Canyon is a great intermediate trail on the backside of the Big Bear Mountain range. While on the trail, expect a scenic drive through what was once a lush forest, dried up streams, and lots of fresh mountain air. Some used this trail as a shortcut to quickly access Holcomb Valley from Lucerne versus driving up and around the mountain on Highway 18. Unfortunately, the trail has been closed to the Holcomb Fire.
