    Look for Burns Canyon Road which is also forest route 2N02. I usually take 2N01 at the intersection of 2N02/ 2N01

    Make sure you have water if you are going this time of year. Very warm at Pioneertown. Pappy and Harriets might be open, maybe take out only. Not sure.

    I have done that jeep trail many times on my 690R Enduro lots of fun to be had. Look for the other trails off of N202, N201 or Burns Canyon Road. Many real good trails and single track trails available for riding in that area. As noted take water this time of year as you are pretty isolated for much of the way beyond Pioneer town or Flamingo Hills on Burns Canyon Road. If you go all the way to Baldwin Lake no services there either; you'll have to go over to Big Bear via asphalt

    Pretty easy to get there using Google maps. Make your track using the bicycle ad your transportation and it will route you to it easily. 20200723_152101.jpg
