I did a spur of the moment run up to Big Bear in January to run Gold Mountain trail, which connected into Holcomb Valley Trail, and then onto Jacoby Trail.
Gold Mountain gets its black diamond rating for a few different challenging sections of rock ledges that need to be climbed. High clearance and lockers are necessary, at least for me.
Here are a few pictures from our Big Bear day trip. We also have a short video of this run, just click on the image here to watch on video on Vimeo. And am still looking for a good music source for including as background audio. Let me know if you are a musician and have your own music to share and we will give it a listen and maybe get your sounds included in our next production.
Thanks and Enjoy!
