Bee Canyon Truck Trail

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Alt Names

San Bernardino National Forest, San Jacinto Ranger District, San Jacinto Ridge, Indian Mountain, Idyllwild

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (due to washouts)

This part of the San Bernardino National Forest offers about 20 miles of easy to moderately challenging forest service roads. All vehicle types are permitted but the area is especially popular with the dual sport and 4x4 crowd.

The terrain ranges from smooth to rugged hardpack with sandy washes that wind through narrow canyons. The trails also have several creek crossings and offer panoramic views of the surrounding area.

The area is open year-round but be prepared to encounter some snow during the winter months as you go up in elevation.
