Just northeast of Big Bear is Johnson Valley. Here you'll find all sorts of areas to drive your 4wd rig through. It's home to King of the Hammers. TTORA SoCal will be visiting Cougar Buttes. Composed of many trials, we'll be tackling a few!
The Difficult Run
Bullfrog will be the main attraction with bits of Cakewalk mixed in and down Box Canyon. Depending on how quick the day goes, we may visit another!
Minimum requirements: 4wd, 32" tires, a mild lift, sliders.
Recommended: a locker, aftermarket skids.
The Hard Run
Hammerdown is a short but very technical trail. Both your driving skills and your truck's capabilities will be put to the test. Body damage is a threat but can be avoided.
Minimum requirements: 4wd, 35" tires, one locker, sliders, aftermarket skids.
Recommended: locked f/r, solid front axle
*currently, we don't have a trail leader for a hard run*
Please be prepared! Here's a brief checklist of items you should bring with you anytime you take your rig offroad:
Trail Preparedness Checklist
This is BLM land so there are few regulations. Obey all signs, protect wildlife and plantlife including the federally protected desert tortoise
, and always pack out what you pack in.
Possession of glass beverage containers is prohibited.
Coming off the 15, exit Bear Valley and head east. Bear Valley ends at the 18. Turn right. Stay straight on the 18 as it turns into the 247(Old Woman Springs Rd.). At Camp Rock Rd., turn left. Follow the coordinates the rest of the way in. A bunch of trails weave in and out of each other but just head in the general direction and you'll get there. You'll be looking at the first obstacle, Chicken Rock.
