Great trail, we drove our 4WD Tacoma’s and used 4WD once. If you’re not in to heights and narrow trails I would skip. Started sunny in Hemet and by the time we got up to Idywild it was significantly cooler. Water fall was cool to stop at and eat lunch.

Great beginner trail, some areas are narrow for two vehicles to squeeze through. Great views along the way, a vehicle with higher clearance, 4X4 somewhat required in some areas. Take water and a battery booster just in case. Always let someone know where you are going just in case.

This trail was so much fun! Definitely the hardest one we’ve done yet. The road is very narrow so if a car is coming the opposite way you’ll find yourself having to reverse on the mountain (very nerve racking). The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and so many places you’ll want to pull over for pictures. There are a ton of bugs on this trail and would recommend some repellent. My husband used 4x4 most the time and would recommend it but isn’t necessary for the entire trail. We did see a lot of people set up for camp as well!

Trail is currently closed for construction. Drove about a mile in before I came up on construction equipment but looks to be amazing once it’s refinished.

Bee Canyon is open now. Makes for a good walk, but surprisingly busy when we visited on the weekend. Lots of off-road vehicle traffic. Also be aware that many people use the canyon area for target shooting.

Totally disappointed.... 74 had escorts for construction but we waited. 1/2 mile we finally made it to the Bee Canyon entrance. Put the jeep in 4WD and 5 minutes later.... locked gate. WTF ? So, as of this message 9-2-2019.... CLOSED.

Gate was closed.

Came down from Pine Cove. Great fun with family. kids loved it. About 5 miles down we came to the water fall and pools. Beautiful and so much fun to play in the water on a hot day. Road was not bad for 4wd.

This trail is rated as medium difficulty but I went in the end of summer and did the whole trail on a 2wd Jeep and didn’t even air down. Just pick your lines use momentum and you’ll be more than fine.

This place is awesome but it’s closed. Not sure why but we were turned around. Tried to go the back way but there’s an Indian reservation that is private. Hopefully it’s open soon for spring and summer! Last time we went (January) it started snowing on the top of the trail, super cool experience. There’s an awesome pond/ waterfall about half way up we were able to drive though it in our wrangler on a 2.5 in lift on 33s. Some areas were slick but not too bad. Make sure to use disconnects or your ride is going to be rough. The roads are big enough in some areas to pass each other but it’s a little sketchy around blind turns. Make sure to respect each others space.
