An interesting hardcore trail that winds along Holcomb Creek. The Rock Garden begins the trail and sets the stage for what's ahead. You can explore a difficult side trail through Lower Largo Flats. There are many ATV and dirt bike trails in the area but green sticker vehicles are not allowed on many main forest roads. A Forest Adventure Pass is required if you stop to recreate. Difficult. No single obstacle stands out on this trail; it's just one challenging boulder field after another. Narrow and tippy in places. Wet tires add to the difficulty as the trail crosses tributaries to Holcomb Creek. You can also increase difficulty by choosing a more aggressive line through the boulders. This trail is not recommended for stock vehicles. Lockers, high ground clearance and undercarriage protection recommended.

5 stars if hard is what you are looking for. JKU 2.5 lift 33 inch tires rear locker only. Destroyed my steering damper but no other damage. Never got stuck. but was pretty challenging. Big group took 6 hours. Don't solo it.

Backpacked almost all the way the the Holcomb Creek Campsite, but not from Big Bear. We forged through on the PCT from Lake Arrowhead @ Hook Creek Rd. A beautiful hike, not very demanding. A bit of up hill for the first 1/3. Then it flattens out for a bit and even gets some nice rolling hills w lots of shade. Even found a nice man made water spring to refill water bottles about 2/3 in. Camped about a mile out of Holcomb Camp for 3 days. Just beautiful and never saw a soul.
