Jeep routes. The rocky ones can be very difficult on a bike. An A+ for Duner for getting thru - we'll make a trials rider out of him yet.

I'm quite familiar with "jeep" routes having ridden the Rubicon trail and Dusy-Ershim trail. I guess what I mean to say is that I had never seen a forest route (road, not classified as a trail by the forest service) that had a trail difficulty classification.

In my neck of the woods there is a big section of forest that has been closed since ~2008 and I have been told countless excuses as to why it is still closed... one is that it is impassable as a "level 2" road (same as any 4x4 route), yet it was open to OHV use (when it was open at all)? Slap a black diamond sticker on the road marker and open it back up already!

Not trying to pick a fight, I'm just confused as to how different ranger districts handle different classifications of roads/ trails. Looks like a fun ride!

San Bernardino Forest is rather unique from anything around the state, or country for that matter. We have a very pro-offroad forest manager, Greg Hoffman, whom works with the various offroad clubs and groups, many of them manage 'trails' themselves under a program called Adopta-Trail.

There are several routes up there that are purposely maintained at an extreme difficulty level since the more built jeep owners want terrain to match their rigs. I've driven the Rubicon myself, and pretty much all of the trails in the Big Bear area, and the latter are some of the most difficult. The only portion of trail left on the Rubicon that is really difficult are the optional 'sluice box's'. I would say the very most difficult routes in the region are in Calico - pretty entertaining to watch...no so much to do unless you have a rig you don't mind being crunched or rolled.

We saw this guy and his lady (they looked "european" = tourists) in a stock jeep just past this pic last year. Stuck beyond stuck, sideways in the creek rocks. He looked ready to cry, I think she was going to kill him..
