    I just moved up to big bear and im getting settled in. Any local TW members live in big bear. If theres enough of us up here itd be cool to plan some offroading (not just big bearians) and meets for eats or BBmod days.

    Chime in if you live up here or know off good offroading places in Big Bear

    i know theres Cactus Flats that is an OHV area, but idk if theres any fun trails for trucks/4x4s. but your not too far from Johnson Valley, which is where they have the King Of The Hammers. its awsome out there youll love it.

    You defiantly do want to hit this trail with a stock truck it's pretty bad ass if you got a rig that can handle it.
    My truck not ready for this trail maybe next summer I'll be ready to hit it.

    Good luck guys have fun that trail is a blast.
