Off Roading in the Big Bear area means, if you can make it the first mile, you will probably make it through the rest of the way. Many domestic cars can take the dirt roads in these mountains. Lowered vehicles not recommended.
This does not include that Gold Mountain challenge. Have fun up there you 4×4 lovers!
You can easily go into Holcomb Valley. Here is a map!
Another great drive is 2N02. It goes out through the high desert from Baldwin Lake. Don’t forget to splash hard at Arrastre Creek!
