Trip Report Cactus Flat - Big Bear May 2017
We spent this past weekend in Big Bear exploring the Cactus Flat OHV riding area just North of Baldwin Lake/Big Bear Lake. The area is awesome for wheeling and has lots of nice trails with some good challenging routes if one were so inclined. Be forewarned, if you are interested in visiting the Cactus Flat staging area, enter from the northern-most side. The southern entrance is not well marked and is quite steep/rocky and narrow. I was able to take my locked 2wd van up and down it without issues, but some rigs may not fare well with the rocks. Case in point....my brother-in-law took the Hellwig SEMA Nissan Titan camper down that trail with his 20' trailer and had some pretty heavy damage. In all fairness, the fact that it made it all the way down is amazing!
We explored the area and also made some runs along Skyline/2N10 (Snow Summit) and Gold Fever Trail (3N14) for some added flavor. Was a very fun weekend!
