Big Bear 4 Wheel Drive Tour. Off road. 4 Wheeling. Big Bear Lake California. July 28th 2013. San Bernardino National Forest. Ranger Greg takes a few volunteers from the Adopt-a-Trail Group on an interpretive tour of the 4×4 trails in Big Bear California. We meet at the Discovery Center at 8:15 am and the tour starts there. We head up Polique Canyon Road to Holcomb Valley. Greg talks about the past and recent history of the area – the Native American Tribes – The original Grizzlies that inhabited the area – the miners, ranchers, and the Pioneers etc. We make a stop at the Hangman’s Tree. After they would hang the people on the branches, the branches would be cut. We head over to the Furnace Canyon area and views of Lucerne Valley and Cougar Buttes. From there we head over to White Mountain 4×4 Trail. We go up and over to Windy Point for Lunch. We head down to Coyote Flat and then meander our way through maze of huge granite boulders and buttresses west of the Grapevine Canyon area. We pick up trash along the way. We head back out toward Holcomb Creek and then out through Fawnskin to end the day. Thanks to Greg for leading the trek. White Mountain Road – Forest Road 3N17. Furnace Canyon Road – Forest Road 3N54. Correction on Arctic Canyon Overlook – should be Furnace Canyon Overlook.
