Best trail I’ve been on hands down for 2WD trucks but still be careful gets very rocky with steep drops on edge of road for miles. Sturdy ground!

I have been using this trail for 30 years. It has held up well. It’s your typical Sierra rockbound path. And it can be an eye opener in a couple places but the facts are it should not be any problem if you go slow and pay attention. A rear locker would be good but not a must. Hi lift jack is a must. Both trail heads are a good distance from help so going it alone has some risk but there will almost always be a hand on the trail. Both sides of the corridor is national forest wilderness. Treat it well. Show some respect and be clean.

Fun trail. Compacted dirt with some rocky sections. A little rutted out in some parts. Ran it from big bear down to pioneer town. Some sections are a little narrow so can be tricky with groups passing. Ran trail in 2011 wk2 overland. Handled without issue and never needed 4lo. Will definitely go again, from desert to mountains next time.

This off road/camping experience is a perfect way to escape San Diego for a night. I came up with a few buddies and we drove in about 3.5mi before we found a turnoff with a great campsite layout. Looks like someone had a fire before us, I would just encourage people to have a fire permit, take the time to set up a rock barrier fire pit, and keep the flame low. Hillsides are still super green.

really nice trail to do. highly recommend

We went up to Calico in the beginning of May 2020. We started up what appeared to be the gatekeeper for the West Phillips Loop. However, my caravan didn’t feel quite confident in going up. So, we turned around and found Kramer Arch. Driving through Kramer Arch was quite an experience. I absolutely recommend finding Kramer Arch while you’re up there. After that, we just backtracked to Mule Canyon Road and finished up our day going through that Trail. Please note that a ton of parties go up there for target shooting. All parties I’ve seen thus far have engaged in safe target shooting practices, you want to be extra careful just in case. As a reminder, please avoid leaving any trash or debris. Unfortunately, the Trail has a lot of rubbish.

Completed the trail in my Subaru Impreza. Only a couple spots where I could have done with a little more clearance but was able to get through fine with some maneuvering. The toughest part was towards the descent of the trail where it gets a bit more rocky. Some really nice views on the way up. Will definitely try again.

Great off-road trail Id rate it as moderate. Starts off as a little bumpy dirt road then turns out to be more sandy then towards the end it will get a bit rocky. So high clearance 4x4 vehicles is a plus & airing down your tires. Bring recovery gear just incase (extra tire & traction boards) there is only 1 drop off zone but people piled up rocks to help with clearing the rocks. I drove a 4runner on 35 inch tires & 3 inch lift. So I had no issue. Also No reception so be ready to disconnect and enjoy nature!

Not going to replicate someone else’s efforts as a very very good write up was posted 3 weeks before mine. The only update I have is that there isn’t snow on the trail anymore and the tower is currently closed due to COVID restrictions. Still a great view from up top though. I was able to do it alone in a Jeep JK Sport, 33” tires and stock lift. I have a decent amount of experience but the trail was still squirrelly at a few points. Cheers!

Trail was fun, I had a 800cc dual sport and my friend had a 250cc dirt bike. definitely a little tricky for beginners because some trails are a little sandy and it'll make you fishtail, but overall fun.

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.

Super easy scenic drive, did it in a slightly modded 2019 Rav4 AWD.

At Beautiful Monument Peak. Stay way from 2N43, fallen trees and can't be crossed. I didn't try 2N45.. but it had a sign : Fallen Tree. You have to continue thru 2N49 to Cleghorn Road, which leads you to Hwy138. Overall, it was a awesome experience! definitely mount a gopro on the front and back of yo track. Great route to end up in Lake Arrowhead. Avoiding that brutal climb on Hwy 18

No open for off-road

Great trail to start on! Did not need 4x4 at all. Can easily be done by a SUV or small truck. The trial is tight though, hard to pass oncoming or have a vehicle pass around.

Did this trail at night. Pretty quick and sweet. Very rocky no 4x4 needed. Looked like a lot of spots to get out and enjoy the scenery.

Was able to get by the down tree and finish the trail. Very fun, especially in a raining thunder lighting storm.
