2730-230 and 2730 Roads

Tygh Valley, Oregon

One can be forgiven for feeling as if an exciting adventure is close at hand while charging down the 2730-230 Road. A rough dirt track snakes through mixed stands of second growth, old growth, and clearcut timber. In the dry summer months, clouds of billowing dust give the distinct impression that this road leads to somewhere important and special. Alas, the end of 2730-230 comes in the form of the smooth blacktop ribbon of 2730. The 2730 Road continues through big stands of timber as it curls around the ridge below Flag Point Lookout on the way to the small village of Friend.

Big Bear Lake, California

2N06X aka Lower Largo Flats is a short but fun offroad trail that connects 3N16 – Holcomb Valley Road to 3N93 – Holcomb Creek.

Many people find this a fun trail for intermediate drivers to advanced. Groups often use 2N06X to avoid the Gate Keeper on the west end of 3N93 – Holcomb Creek, thus allowing them to do the second half of the trail and also allow them to back track to the middle large rock garden with ease. Expect to take a small group approximately 30 minutes to a few hours to get to the exit of Holcomb Creek.

Difficulty: Easy
Length: 3.2 Miles

2N30 Cloudland Cut Off is on the south-facing slopes below the community of Crestline in the San Bernardino National Forest. It is an ideal trail for the new 4x4 off-road wheeler due to no obstacles and its shorter length. The views of the Inland Empire are fantastic where you can see from the Banning Pass and Mount San Jacinto to the east and Orange and Los Angeles counties to the west including the Pacific Ocean. The real highlight of the trail is on Marshall Peak where the paragliders and hang gliders launch. When conditions are good they can fly for hours on the thermals and eventually land 3,000 feet below near the California State University at San Bernardino.
