Willow Creek Trail 3N34 Meeting Location: Pinnacles Staging Area is located off of Highway 173 near Lake Arrowhead, CA GPS Coordinates: N 34 17.874 W 117 12.050 Meeting Time: 10:00am The Willow Creek Trail offers a nice combination of an easy graded trail and a rougher OHV one. Depending on what you prefer, you can choose the main graded route that crosses with a well known OHV trail in San Bernardino National Forest. Or, you can drive through other tougher 4WD trails. Take your pick. These trails are clearly marked. For the more adventurous, the tougher route is harsh with holes and off camber areas. You need good control and excellent suspensions in the 4WD. These areas are graded blue among the OHV trails. The simpler road offers you a good view of the sections which were burned by the Willow Creek Fire that happened in 1999. Typical of a burned forest area, you will still find blackened and lifeless tree stumps. Trail Length: 8.9 miles Trail Time: 3 hours Difficulty: moderate Depending on time and the size of the group we will also explore the other trails that cross 3N34.
