Big Bear - 3/3 Anybody?

Looking for any groups or activities going on in Big Bear on March 3, Saturday? Me and a buddy are going up to goof off... So that's two guys and two jeeps - looking for a plan.

Any ideas?

Is Gold Mountain open in the winter?

Several good trails but we could get snow between now and then that would shut them down. I have a trail map at home, I can see if they are closed during winter.

If they are open I could be up for going.

There is a listing of BB trails here, unfortunate the conditions have not been updated for years.

Dishpan as an option - Just know what you wish for.

Dishpan Springs Trail can be found in the San Bernardino National Forest near Lake Arrowhead. The Dishpan Springs Trail is one of the toughest and most popular trails in the SBNF. The favored direction of travel is from West to East starting on 2N26Y Hook Creek Rd. Dishpan Springs Trail is available to street legal vehicles and green sticker vehicles.

You can expect to encounter large boulders, deep ruts, steep climbs and a dry waterfall. The US Forest Service rates this trail a black diamond most difficult trail and it is not recommended for stock SUVs. Body damage and breakage are a possibility. Elevation ranges from 4700' to over 5900' and during the winter months snow and ice add to the difficulty of traversing the trail.

Have to admit it sounds like my sort of trail

Cool. I'll post agian as it gets close. The weather may affect the trails, but rain or shine we're going to get away. Wheelin is a bonus for goof-off. Hope we get to find an open trail.
