More Information on This Unique Big Bear Experience

For the ultimate Big Bear off-roading experience, there are two main tour providers in the area: Big Bear Jeep Experience and Big Bear Off-Road Adventures.

If you decide to go with Big Bear Jeep Experience, you are firmly within control of your  Big Bear off-road tour experience, as you are given the ability to drive the company’s jeeps and plan out your route with a guide ahead of time. With options for kid-friendly trips, intermediate off-roading, and advanced off-roading, Big Bear Jeep Experience’s trails cater to a wide range of experience levels and expectations.

Routes taken through this company will take you primarily through locations like Holcomb Valley, Johnson Valley, Lake Arrowhead, the Santa Ana River, Cactus Flats, Gold Mountain, and Jacoby Canyon. Prices for these tours range from $150 per hour to $550 for a four-hour half day, with certain tours having pre-determined times. The cost is for each Jeep rented; there are no fuel or per person charges.

Big Bear Off-Road Adventures, meanwhile, operates during all four seasons of the year and utilizes fully-convertible Pinzgauer vehicles to tour a wide range of remote areas not as accessible by Jeep. Tours are given through Jacoby Gulch, Wildhourse Meadow, Rose Mine, the Santa Ana River, Butler Peak Fire Lookout, Balky Horse Canyon, Holcomb Valley, the Champion Lodgepole Pine, and more.
