THREE DAY WEEKEND CAPO VALLEY Lets take a Day Run in the middle !
Heartbreak Ridge is a moderately tough trail in the Big Bear area. This trail is sometimes known as Pontiac Sluice. This trail consists of a spur with a loop, off of forest road 2N61Y. The old Pontiac rusting away near the beginning gives the trail its alternate name. The "Sluice" portion is actually a short distance up the trail, not really near the Pontiac. The Sluice is an optional route through the rocky bottom of the canyon, while an easier bypass runs parallel (this part is only a few hundred feet long). The trail is rocky in places but can be traversed by stock 4X4s with open differentials and a skilled driver. The highlight of this trail is the monument at the top of the ridge to commemorate a fellow 4X4 enthusiast who lost his life in Iraq.
