Looking for a cool trail in Big Bear (socal)

Anybody have any places that are not too crazy? My jeep is mostly stock but i'll have the RC2.5, 1.25 combo in by then. It will still be on 31s with open difs. I'm hoping for a couple 2-6 hr runs that i can do on Sat and Sun while i stay at a cabin for the nights. If anybody wants to join us on the run you are more than welcome (its may 29th-31).

You should register for Big Bear Forest Fest. It is almost full, but they have some easy runs that you would enjoy. It's the weekend of June 21st.

Can't do it, too much going on then. I found 3 possible trails so if anybody has been to any of these i would appreciate the feedback.
Gold Mountain
Clarks Summit
Big Pine Flat Trail

I got these off my trial subscription to trails.com, but if anybody knows any good sites with a bit more info i would love to hear about them.
Thanks!
joe

Gold Mountain is a lot of fun. There are a few tougher sections, but we've gotten open/open Jeeps through there plenty of times.

Clark's Summit is booooring. It's just a dirt road, but I guess it's kinda scenic.

Our group will be up there that Saturday for our Adopt-A-Trail cleanup. I'm hoping to be able to run a trail in the late afternoon.

Cool...what trail are you doing? I got in kinda late, too...and with no lockers couldn't do the secret run, so I'm doing Gold Mountain. Fairly easy with my mods, but fun none-the-less.

No...unfortunately, my wife is away that weekend and we have some exotic animals at home, so I'll be commuting. Might stay at a friend's cabin Friday night and head home after the Saturday run.

We're thinking about running Horse Thief in the dark Friday night.
