off road driving
Start off on Bee Canyon Truck Trail, then turn onto San Jacinto Ridge Truck Trail.
Started off with rolling dirt dunes that any 2 wheel drive can access and then progresses into rocky terrain where 4 x 4 is suggested. There several large crevices that we had to conquer but nothing a stock FJ cruiser can't handle. Loose rocks and dirt on a slight incline with large grooves were are biggest challenge but a very fun trail that ends up in Idyllwild. There is a very scenic waterfall/river that passes through the trail at one point but it can be easily driven through.
Wow what a great trail. We drove for 7 miles to get up into the cloud line and ascend to the mountains top camping ground. What a great area in inland empire.
