“A big dirt road loop with big views, climbs, and descents.”— Leslie Kehmeier
Start by pedaling up FSR 2N08. At the top, you'll enjoy expansive views before starting a "big time" downhill into the Santa Ana River Valley via Clark's Grade (1N54). At the bottom, turn left on Converse Road (1N04) and settle in for the biggest challenge of the ride when you ascend back up to South Shore via steep and legendary Radford Truck Trail (2N06). The climb up Radford Truck Trail (2N06) is on a fire road climb that tops out at the back of the Big Bear Ski Resorts. It is less-traveled than Clark's Grade and much rockier towards the top.
Near the top of the climb, turn left on Skyline Road (2N10). Enjoy a quick downhill before turning right on FSR 2N51Y. Pedal a little uphill from here and then turn right on FSR 2N08 to finish the ride.
