TRAIL DESCRIPTION:
This route passes through dense forest and open meadows along one of the main routes through a popular OHV area in San Bernardino National Forest. The more difficult parts consist of weathered trails with severe holes, ruts, and off-camber sections. Good wheel articulation will be an advantage. Vehicles with less flexible suspensions will find themselves lifting wheels on occasion. These sections are rated blue and black diamond. The first part of the route travels through some scenery burned over by the Willow Creek Fire in 1999. Recovery is slow and many parts of the landscape are still blackened and bare.

Dishpan Springs, the last black-rated section of this route, is extremely rocky and boulder-strewn and is recommended for vehicles with additional lift, lockers, and good tires. Crossing Deep Creek is no longer an issue since the forest service built a concrete bridge over it. A Forest Adventure Pass is required if you stop to recreate.
