I know this is kind of a late notice but our Odessa trip was cancelled due to T-Storms in that area.
I'm running Dishpan Springs to Cleghorn tomorrow afternoon (celghorn from Lake Silverwood to the 15 Freeway).
Meeting time is 4:00PM at Dishpan Springs. I'm checking my San Bernardino Forest Map right now to determine exact meeting location which I will post up soon.
All who are in...Chime In.
Description Of Dishpan Springs from MJR.
Dishpan Springs Trail (3N34)
Located near Lake Arrowhead, this black diamond trail is a forest favorite!
Big Bear Area, Southern California
Length: 4-1/2 miles
Time to complete: 1-1/2 hours
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.
