The US Forest Service rates this trail a blue square more difficult trail. There is one creek crossing near the middle of the trail that will put a squeeze on full size vehicles.
Jacoby Canyon Trail can be found in the San Bernardino National Forest near Big Bear Lake. The favored direction of travel is from North to South starting on Hwy 18. The bumpy dirt trail is available to street legal vehicles only but reasonably higher clearance is recommended.
Elevation ranges from 6000′ to over 7200′ and during the winter months snow and ice add to the difficulty of traversing the trail. This one way trail starts near the Holcomb mine and slowly winds down through a small narrow side canyon. The canyon offers some enjoyable scenery and in general the trail and route are quite fun. Jacoby Canyon appears to have some smaller single space campsites near the bottom of the route. The trail releases onto Highway 18 near Cactus Flats.
