Where 2 Ride In Big Bear, CA

Looking for good rides in the Big Bear area.

Grab one of the maps from one of the local mountain bike stores of the Discovery center in Big Bear. Get the one with the trail numbers. These are like street names and you will see trails that take you in just about every direction. There are lots of great places to ride up there.

You can start 7 miles north of Fawnskin (NW corner of Big Bear Lake) at Hanna Flats. There are trails that will take you to Lake Arrowhead, Green Valley Lake, and Valley. I'm sure there are other places you can go as well. It's great riding up there and some great technical trails.

Do a search for Big Bear trail Rider's or bbtr. that's a AMA club up there. They'll be in the know and invite you alonge. :cry:

Just wondering what trail it is you are riding

from bear to arrowhead? I did a lot of riding

in arrowhead this summer (pilot rock, miller canyon

silverwood ) the trails that head NE (willow creek,

deep creek, squints ranch ) are closed from fire/

mudslide. Its my understanding they wont be open for

a long time. This is a good area to ride and Id

love to expand on it.

any suggestions would help.



I'll be up there this weekend riding. I'll let you know what I find.

Looking foward to hear about it.

Want to hook up? I plan on going up too. I usually stage halfway down the road to Crab Flats (off the Green Valley road) and do a 60 mile loop (I am dual sported though). This is assuming they don't close the area down 'cause of all the rain.

I've read to really enjoy the area you need to be dual-sported.

That's correct. Especially as the good stuff around Arrowhead is closed. You now have to ride around (be dual sported) quite a bit to connect the fun stuff.

Sounds great. Check your PM.

      Yo kids ,
       we just did our annual run to blind Indian today and the other fun stuff the area has to offer , conditions were purely awsome after the storms last night, the #211 trail needs some activity , doesn't look like shes getting used too much , we kicked a bunch of rocks off ,broke some nasty dead branches , etc , still passable , the 1st uphill with switch backs has been storm washed exposing aggregate but thats not suck a bad deal ( traction was pretty good ) , she needs to see more riders ...put this on your agenda, grab some like minded trail hoppers and lets keep this trail fresh

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?
