This is a great day trip to spend in the mountains. from Highway 18 at the Big Bear Dam you turn left onto highway 38 around the north shore of Big Bear. Continue till you see the sign Van Dusen Rd and turn left. The paved road takes you through residential neighborhoods where the dirt road begins.
The trail depending on the time of year you visit is moderately graded and with a little bit of suspension travel you'll be fine. Follow the trail to the signs and you'll be there in about 30 mins from the road.
