Memorial Day Big Bear Trip

Hey everyone. A couple of buddies and I are looking into a trip down to Big Bear over Memorial Day weekend. Most of the Rubicon will more than likely still be covered in snow I'm guessing, so we chose Big Bear as an alternative. I'm in need of recommendations since I've never recon'd the area. Possibly going to stay at a campground called Serrano. It appears pretty centrally located and a good launch point, since I've never been there. Some of the trails I've researched look like they have some difficulty and the moderate trails look like they'd just be cool to cruise around on. Probably bring my fishing poles and maybe the .22's if that allowed. Looks like its a pretty good network and most trails connect one way or another. Please chime in and provide some feedback. Thanks in advance.

Jeff

Make sure you book a camp site. They opened a few weeks ago and get booked pretty fast.

We had a lot of snow and rain this year, so the trails might be interesting. Gold mountain is a good one. Little John Bull and John Bull is supposed to be the hardest. Holcomb creek is very nice but friends did it a week ago and said it was much harder than in the past. Still lots of water on it that made the rocks slippery. Dish Pan in another good one and not to bad except for the one water fall. White mountain is a good one to and not to hard. Depending in the temps, horse thieve flats in nice too, but is exposed and have no shade.

The Jeep Jamboree is this weekend so I guess the trails will het some maintenance done to them. You can't go wrong with any of the trails up there and none is super hard. If you can do the Rubicon, you can do Big Bear too.
