One of our favorite places to wheel in the summer months and the site of our annual Big Red 4th of July Adventure.
Part of the San Bernardino National Forest, the Big Bear area has dozens of off-road trails. Some of them are well-maintained, while others can be rugged and challenging.
The high elevation of Big Bear makes for great summertime off-roading in Southern California, when other destinations are too hot. If you like 'wheeling in the snow, there's plenty of that in the winter. If you're up for a long trail ride, you can even start your trip down in the desert and off-road all the way up to the top of the mountains.
GPS maps for our favorite trails are attached below.
