Rattlesnake Canyon to Baldwin Lake

August 31, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm


UPDATED FRIDAY EVENING: There is no update – see everyone at 9:30AM.. Dress cool!

This will be an easy off-road run from Highway 247 near Johnson Valley through the Big Bear mountains to Baldwin Lake near the city of Big Bear.  This is an easy run – just perfect for beginners, and no problem for any stock 4×4 vehicle. We will encounter sandy washes, a few small rocks, and some tight-squeezes, but much of this run will be on fairly well-maintained dirt roads.  We plan to finish the day near Baldwin Lake, HERE, hopefully before dark

A few notes about this run:

  • Check back here Saturday morning before you leave for any updates.
  • Bring plenty of food, water, and snacks. It will be a long day.
  • Pets are welcome but for the safety of your animal and others, please maintain full control of your animal at all times.
  • Drinking on the trail is frowned upon and his very highly discouraged
  • There are NO BATHROOMS along this entire route. We will have to make due with bushes and rocks.
  • This will be a long day. We plan to finish before dark, but off-roading is always an adventure and it is impossible to predict what could happen along the way. If you need to be home by a certain time, this run may not be for you.


  • Any stock 4×4 vehicle with a spare tire and recovery points
  • A full tank of fuel (closest fuel is in Lucerne Valley or Flamingo Heights/Landers)
  • CB Radio or GMRS/FRS/HAM (optional, but recommended CLICK HERE if you need an inexpensive radio)
  • A sense of fun and adventure!


We will meet at the the intersection of Hwy 247 and Rattlesnake Canyon Road at 9:30AM
Be sure to arrive early enough to fuel-up, use the rest room, etc.

      Hi Norm! Just sign up on the events-list here: https://www.notarubicon.com/eventreg/
      and be sure to confirm your email address and you will get notified for all public runs of all levels.. Our next open/public run will be a moderate/difficult run – we’re thinking Mottino Wash, as soon as it cools down a bit.
