Pilot Rock Trail

The Pilot Rock Truck Trail (Forest Route 2N33) is a trail of little difficulty with some optional spurs of varying difficulty. Any vehicle with some ground clearance should make it through this scenic and stunning trail. If you own a Subaru/modern station wagon it would make it through, albeit with some likely damage to the bumpers. I rode this trail from west-to-east and avoided the majority of the more difficult offshoots that the trail offered. If you want to have a nice, relaxing ride then this is a great place to head out to if you’re passing through the Big Bear Lake or Silverwood Lake areas. Enjoy the videos!

Jacoby Canyon

Jacoby Canyon is a moderate trail northeast of Big Bear Lake. The Forest Road designation is 2N61. It can be reached from CA-18 on the east side or from 3N16 on the western side. I hit the trail from the eastern end. My big Tundra with only 32″ tires was able to fit and get through relatively unscathed. I didn’t even need to use that awesome ARB locker I installed in the rear axle. Any truck or 4×4 with some ground clearance and a decent tire should make it through. Going slow also helps. Enjoy!
