2N61Y - Heartbreak Ridge

Big Bear City, California

Heartbreak Ridge is one of the less commonly know trails in Big Bear but is on the list of hardest trails. Because of its location on the east side of the mountain range, this trail doesn't see much traffic. But just because there is not much traffic on this trail doesn't mean it is a easy one. With several rock gardens, several spots with high roll over risks, and a narrow difficult canyon, this trail will provide most drivers with an enjoyable day of off-roading.

In 1859, Billy Holcomb came to nearby, now called, Holcomb Valley. He discovered Gold in 1860. The trail itself is beautiful with scenic views of the Mojave Desert to the north, Bear Valley and Mt San Gorgonio to the west and south.

2N90 - Tip Top Mountain

Big Bear City, California

Tip Top Mountain was home to a silver, lead, and gold mine back in the late 1800's up through the early 1900's. The name of the mine changed a few times over the years as the mine switched hands, with the earliest name being Tip Top Silver Mine. Today you can still find the mines throughout the area, but many are unsafe to explore and the Forest Service have blocked many of the mine entrances off. The top of Tip Top Mountain has a 360 degree picturesque view, with diverse scenery ranging from the sun-drenched desert landscape to the lush, and at times snow-capped mountains of the San Bernardino National Forest. Tip Top Mountain is just one of the many trails you can venture upon on what locals call, "the back way to Big Bear" and it truly is a gem. So, indulge yourself in the beautiful scenery, weather and trail systems this area provides.
